Malaysia is about to release genetically modified GM Aedes mosquitoes into the environment. This field release will make Malaysia one of the first countries in the world to release GM Ae. aegypti mosquitoes. The only other known country which has done so is the Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory in 2009 which has been controversial and raised in both the British and European Parliaments.
