Multigene Phylogenetics Reveals Temporal Diversification of Major African Malaria Vectors
The major vectors of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa belong to subgenus Cellia. Yet, phylogenetic relationships and temporal diversification among African mosquito species have not been unambiguously determined. Knowledge ...
Structural divergence of chromosomes between malaria vectors Anopheles lesteri and Anopheles sinensis
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2016-11-25)
Background Anopheles lesteri and Anopheles sinensis are two major malaria vectors in China and Southeast Asia. They are dramatically different in terms of geographical distribution, host preference, resting habitats, ...
The Physical Genome Mapping of Anopheles albimanus Corrected Scaffold Misassemblies and Identified Interarm Rearrangements in Genus Anopheles
(Genetics Society America, 2017-01-01)
The genome of the Neotropical malaria vector Anopheles albimanus was sequenced as part of the 16 Anopheles Genomes Project published in 2015. The draft assembly of this species consisted of 204 scaffolds with an N50 scaffold ...
Maternal Germline-Specific Genes in the Asian Malaria Mosquito Anopheles stephensi: Characterization and Application for Disease Control
(Genetics Society America, 2015-02-01)
Six novel Y chromosome genes in Anopheles mosquitoes discovered by independently sequencing males and females
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2013-04-23)
Background Y chromosomes are responsible for the initiation of male development, male fertility, and other male-related functions in diverse species. However, Y genes are rarely characterized outside a few model species ...
