Finally a use for mosquitos

isolate antigenic proteins that confer immunity to microbes. sequence the amino acids that form that protein, and crate a cDNA that will result in that protein, add stop codons, start codons and dna polymerase binding sites for mosquito. Add this to mosquito larvae eggs. Put a marker gene with it so you can select the mosquitos that have been transformed. Better yet, add genes homogous to mosquito salviary proteins. Select for mosquitos that express the marker.
Repeat with new antigens until mosquito is a flying immunity program. You could have free vaccinations for a host of diseases free, once you get going.
Problems: who would fund this, if its free to the consumer. What about mutations.
