Approximately two years ago, two of us (E.B. and V.G.) demonstrated the first experimental application of CRISPR–Cas9 to 'drive' a desired trait throughout a population of fruit flies. In November 2015, this same team at the University of California, San Diego, joined with A.A.J. and others at the University of California, Irvine, to develop a CRISPR-based gene drive for population modification of the malaria vector mosquito Anopheles stephensi. A month later, a group in the United Kingdom applied a CRISPR-based gene drive to another malaria vector, Anopheles gambiae.
