Mosquitoes are evading efforts to control their population by developing resistance to the most commonly-used insecticides. The quest for effective methods of eliminating mosquitoes is more urgent than ever.
At the Natural Products Institute (NPI) at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica, researchers are now better armed for the fight against mosquitoes, thanks to Seeding Labs.
When an Instrumental Access shipment arrived in December 2017, "Ten years of equipment came all at once," says Dr. Rupika Delgoda, head of the NPI. "My students were in heaven! It was a sight to behold."
