Project context and summary :

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.
