In the ATSB Project (Evaluation And Development Of Attractive Toxic Sugar Baits For Control Of Anopheline Malaria Vectors In Africa; 2012 until 2015) the ZSM will work on the “Non Targets” of the fauna of Mali (several insect groups, e.g. moths). The approach is integrative taxonomic and includes rapid biodiversity assessment through DNA Barcoding. The project is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (U.S.A., Global Health Grant Number OPP1032358 BMGF:01083000428).
