Abstract:
Aedes aegypti mosquito is the principle vector for dengue virus transmission. It is the day-biting mosquito which natually breeds in different water containers in and around houses. Dengue/dengue haemorrhagic fever (DF/DHF) is a re-emerging public health problem with > 2.5 billkm people at risk in th world with the greatest disease bilrden in Southeast Asia and the c. An understanding of genetic population structure and dispersal ability in vector populations is important basic Knowledge for effective vector control using both inventional methods and novel strategies such as genetic modification of the vectors.
