   Vigorous research since the completion of the Anopheles gambiae genome
   sequence has established the malaria mosquito as a model organism for
   host-pathogen biology. However, the translation of this growing
   post-genomic knowledge base into new vector-targeted malaria control
   strategies is a distinct challenge that now leads laboratory-based
   molecular researchers to confront the complexity and heterogeneity of
   the natural malaria transmission system. Simultaneously, a body of
   field-based vector researchers has been developing new ways to utilize
   existing vector control tools such as bednets and insecticides that,
   if consistently implemented, can yield impressive outcomes. Lab and
   field based practitioners attend different meetings and rarely engage
   in direct dialog. This conference will examine the tension between the
   development of new practical malaria control tools, including genomic
   ones, and the advantages of more fully exploiting existing tools. It
   is hoped that the scientific discussion will help influence individual
   and programmatic research priorities.
