Scientists have discovered how mosquitoes develop viral immunity

Scientists have discovered how mosquitoes develop viral immunity, a breakthrough that could lead to better vaccines against mosquito-born viruses such as dengue and West Nile.

This is the first time such a mechanism has been found in mosquitoes or any invertebrates.
