Summary

In this issue of Science, two reports (pp. 2002 and 2005) describe the first successful transformation of the Mediterranean fruit fly, a serious pest for coffee and fruit growers. In his Perspective, M. Ashburner gives some historical background and explains why this may allow better control of this (and other) insects.
