The sterile insect technique (SIT) is an environmentally friendly and effective pest control method that releases sterile males to mate with wild females resulting in the suppression or eradication of targeted pest populations. New molecular technologies and genome editing methods are paving the way to bring this technolog…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
