Whole body fluorescent protein markers for transgenic Aedes aegypti

Strongly expressed fluorescent protein genes that are expressed throughout development can be useful for identifying transgenic mosquitoes in the field. In a recent paper we report that the Aedes aegypti hsp83 promoter drives expression of ZsGreen and DsRed fluorescent protein genes in larvae, pupae and adults. Sophia Webster, a former doctoral student, was the first author on the study.
