Newly Discovered Mode of Drinking in Mosquitoes Carries Biomedical Implications
BEAM Associate Professor Jake Socha talks about his recent study in Scientific Reports detailing the discovery of a new mode of drinking in mosquitoes, which the researchers have named the burst mode. The team used the synchrotron x-ray facility at Argonne National Laboratory to collect live videos of the mosquitoes' drinking mechanisms.
Mosquitoes and the diseases they carry remain an ongoing focus of public health concern. These new findings on the insect’s feeding mechanisms and modalities could have larger implications for how scientists address mosquito-borne disease transmission in future research.
