In the study the researchers altered a gene that codes for a "signalling molecule". This molecule, a protein, enables the mosquito's cells to communicate with each other, and is crucial for parasite development inside the mosquito. The team was able to add a fluorescent tag to the gene, to ensure that it had been successfully "expressed" by the mosquito larvae.
