Science Show - 25/5/2002: Possums in New Zealand (849 words)
Warwick Grant: Well, of course, when the possums were introduced into New Zealand they werenÂ’t put into quarantine or anything like that and so they brought some possum bugs along with them, and one of the possum bugs that they brought is a nematode parasite in the small intestine of the possum.
Warwick Grant: Yes, the idea is that we will manipulate the nematode genetically, so that it will still sit there quite happily in the small intestine of the possums but it will interfere with the reproductive cycle of the possum.
Warwick Grant: In principle, we will have nematodes that we will be able to test in possums under containment within the next one or two years and depending on the outcome of trials under containment conditions, I guess the next stage would be to go to some kind of limited release.
