Scientists may have found an effective vaccine that can protect people from multiple strains of malaria.
Researchers mutated mosquitoes by removing the gene, orco, which left the mosquitoes with no sense of smell.
Researchers found that when mosquitoes transfered the malaria parasite, the genetic activity of the parasite resets and results in a less severe form of malaria.
The research may be apply to fields as diverse as malaria treatment and health problems in humans.
