Introduction

A Fungal Species Metarhizium anisopliae is a genetically engineered fungus who carries a human anti malaria antibody which is highly effective for killing malaria. This is natural malaria killer species. To make this species more effective for killing malaria researchers engineered a gene which derived from a spider. This trail is designed to reduce the population of malaria spreading mosquito. According to a research published in 31st May 2019 by a group of scientist from Mary Land University they have a study regarding the approach of a transgenic killing malaria out side of the laboratory and they have observed that that the transgenic fungus delivered its toxin substance to kill malaria mosquito reduced its 90% of population in West Africa village.
