In één enkel jaar zijn er 200 tot 300 miljoen gevallen van malaria en 50 tot 100 miljoen gevallen van knokkelkoorts wereldwijd. Waarom hebben we dan nog geen manier gevonden om muggen effectief te doden ? Hadyn Parry presenteert een fascinerende oplossing: mannelijke muggen genetisch manipuleren om ze steriel te maken en ze loslaten in het wild om de populatie van deze ziekteverspreider te doen dalen.
