Comparative analysis of the global transcriptome of Anopheles funestus from Mali, West Africa.
BACKGROUND: Anopheles funestus is a principal vector of malaria across much of tropical Africa and is considered one of the most efficient of its kind, yet studies of this species have lagged behind those of its broadly ...
A major genetic locus controlling natural Plasmodium falciparum infection is shared by East and West African Anopheles gambiae
Background Genetic linkage mapping identified a region of chromosome 2L in the Anopheles gambiae genome that exerts major control over natural infection by Plasmodium falciparum. This 2L Plasmodium-resistance interval was ...
