Abstract
Background: Tsetse flies transmit African trypanosomiasis leading to half a million cases annually.
Trypanosomiasis in animals (nagana) remains a massive brake on African agricultural development.
While trypanosome biology is widely studied, knowledge of tsetse flies is very limited, particularly
