It's been suggested that the humble mosquito is responsible for more deaths than all the wars combined. Scientists
working at the Planck institute are hoping to change this by using the mosquitoes themselves as a way to administer a malaria vaccine
infects two hundred and fifty million, and kills between one and three million people each year (many children in sub Sahara Africa), if successful, this could be a huge shift in the way the virus is managed and potentially improve the quality of life for billions of people in temperate climates.
