Project context and summary :

The mechanisms underlying Anopheles mosquito susceptibility to malaria parasite infection in nature are not understood. We infected wild Anopheles pedigrees in West Africa to map loci for susceptibility to the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Individuals from phenotyped pedigrees were entirely sequenced in order to identify and fine-map segregating loci.
