About Aedes aegypti

Aedes aegypti exists in at least two forms (considered either subspecies or separate species according to different authors), namely Ae. aegypti formosus (the original wild type found in Africa) and Ae. aegypti aegypti (the worldwide urban form). The yellow fever mosquito, Ae. aegypti aegypti, has a worldwide distribution in the tropics and subtropics where it is the main vector of both dengue and yellow fever viruses.

EST and Protein Alignments

Aedes aegypti ESTs were mapped onto the genome using Exonerate (Example: supercont1.174:147000-580000).

WU-BlastX was used to map UniProtKB proteins onto the Aedes aegypti genome. The datasets used were: Aedes, mosquito, drosophilid, arthropod, metazoan, eukaryotic, and non-eukaryotic proteins. The wider taxonomic groups exclude any of the more specific groups, e.g. the arthropod dataset excludes mosquito and drosophilid proteins. (Example: supercont1.174:147000-580000).

Approximately 1300 community annotations are mapped to the genome (Example: supercont1.174:147000-580000).
