Abstract

Samson Ogunlade developed single and multi-Wolbachia strain(s) invasive models in wild-type mosquitoes. He found that the advantage of Wolbachia retainment in mosquitoes strongly outweighed cytoplasmic incompatibility and releasing mosquitoes with two different strains of Wolbachia did not increase their prevalence, compared with a single-strain Wolbachia-infected mosquito introduction and only delayed Wolbachia dominance. These findings contribute to the mitigation or elimination of global arboviral infections in particular, dengue.
