Gene editing of mosquito is no doubt one of the ways to eradicate Zika and other mosquito borne diseases likeYellow Fever, West Nile Virus, Chikungunya and Dengue Fever. It could also be argued as the quickest and most effective method.
As far as I research, there can be two options of modifications (a) making mosquito offspring die prematurely or (b) making mosquito disease resistant.
There are also questions about: How this new power would affect the world? What are we are going to use it for in the future? Will all scientists be cautious and responsible when every lab can do it easily in the future?
You can watch Jennifer Kahn asking these questions.
