Virtual mosquito agents transition through a series of states representing life-stage and behaviour aspects of the mosquito’s lifecycle. Agents carry out these behaviours until death (simulated random mortality, which can happen at any state). The presence of cell-lethal genes halt agent development (indicated by coloured lines). Abbreviations are: EBS, early acting bisex; EFK, early acting female-killing; LBS, late acting bisex; LFK, late acting female killing.
