We are comparing the bacterial communities of domestic and sylvatic breeding sites and midguts of Aedes aegypti collected in Gabon.
The genome of the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes Aegypti) is not fully annoyed, and this project aims at discovering novel transcripts using RNAseq data.
The goal of the project is to determine if there are differences in the midgut microbiome of our lab colonies of Aedes aegypti. We frequently observe various phenotypic differences between different colonies of mosquitoes and it is a recurring question whether these phenotypic differences are a result of differences in the microbiome. We will sequence the microbiome of 6 representative established lab colonies that have been collected from geographically diverse areas and compare the bacterial communities between the them. This data will help us dissect the importance that variation of the midgut microbiome of lab colonies of Aedes aegypti has on the phenotypic differences we observe in the lab.
Assessing the integrations of viral sequences into the genomes of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti
Aedes albopictus is an important vector for transmitting arboviruses, such as Dengue, Chikungunya, West Nile or Zika viruses. Its worldwide distribution due to its high ability to adapt to variable en
Characterization of the bacterial and fungal microbiota in Aedes aegypti natural breeding sites and larvae
Although the microbiota of mosquitoes is known to play an important role in their vectorial capacity for human pathogens, most earlier studies have focused on mosquito-bacteria interactions at the adu
Our research team recently identified an Aedes aegypti mosquito population that is partially resistant to dengue virus infection. We also have candidate genes that potentially innerly this phenotype.
We are currently characterising a set of genes that are involved in the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, vector competence. We would like to investigate the polymorphisms of those genes using ex
