"Genetically Modified Made-in-Malaysia Mosquitoes : A First for Malaysian Biotechnology Industry" The IMR of Malaysia has applied for approval from the National National Safety Board[NSB] to release at least 30,000 genetically modified mosquitoes into the wild at two targeted areas ie The State of Pahang and the UNESCO state of Malacca. Public objection have been brewing up to disallow the release of these GM mosquitoes into the wild.
