Description

A simple recording of a mosquito’s buzz on a cell phone could contribute to a global-scale mosquito tracking map of unprecedented detail. The Prakash Labat Stanford, led by Manu Prakash, assistant professor of bioengineering, is looking for citizen scientists to contribute to Abuzz, a mosquito monitoring platform the lab developed to produce the most detailed global map of mosquito distribution. All that’s required is for as many people as possible to
submit audio recordings of mosquitoes they encounter. Visit Abuzz: http://abuzz.stanford.edu/
