About Aedes albopictus
The Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, is native to Asia but over the past century it has become established in almost 30 countries in the old and new world. It has the ability to act as a vector for many viral agents including those responsible for Dengue fever, La Crosse encephalitis, Zika virus, and West Nile virus.
The Foshan strain of Ae. albopictus used for sequencing was obtained from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention of Guangdong Province, China where it has been in culture since 1981.
