Determining the Extrinsic Incubation Period and Transovarial Transmission Potential of Zika Virus in Aedes Aegypti Mosquitoes

The goal of this project was to conduct laboratory experiments to define the temperature specific Extrinsic Incubation Period (EIP) of Zika virus in Aedes aegypti and to determine if transovarial transmission was possible. This project was funded by a National Science Foundation grant program called Rapid Response Research (RAPID).
