    Publication: Aeroplane wing, a new recessive autosomal phenotypic marker in malaria vector, Anopheles stephensi Liston

    Aeroplane wing, a new recessive autosomal phenotypic marker in malaria vector, Anopheles stephensi Liston A novel aeroplane (ae) winged mutant has been established in our TIGS insectary. Genetic study reveals the ae gene is autosomal, recessive, and monogenic in nature. This wing mutant is reported for the first time in Anopheles stephensi, an urban malaria [...]

    Publication: Wastewater-based surveillance of vector-borne pathogens: a cautionary note

    In our latest publication, Dr. Farah Ishtiaq provides a caution note on employing wastewater surveillance for vector-borne pathogens. When employing wastewater surveillance for vector-borne pathogens it is essential to take into account the geographical context, pathogen biology, and the availability of sewage networks for public health actions and meaningful interventions. The paper was published in the [...]

    On the new recent surge in Covid 19 cases and JN.1 variant

    The Tata Institute for Genetics and Society (TIGS) has been conducting sewage surveillance for SARS-COV-2 in Bengaluru since the past two years. “This new strain (JN.1), a close relative of Omicron variant, is an interesting and peculiar one evading the immunity obtained through previous infections or vaccines infecting people. It is spreading silently as most [...]
