Anopheles coluzzii (Mosquito, Ngousso) (AcolN1)

The Anopheles coluzzii data and its display on Ensembl Genomes are made possible through a joint effort by the Ensembl Genomes group and VectorBase, a component of VEuPathDB.

The assembly name may not match that from INSDC due to additional community contributions applied by VEuPathDB to the initial INSDC assembly (recorded by the assembly accession).

About Anopheles coluzzii

Anopheles coluzzii, formerly known as Anopheles gambiae M molecular form, was defined as a separate species in 2013 (Coetzee et al.). An. coluzzii belongs to the Anopheles gambiae species complex, which consists of at least seven species.

Ngousso strain

The Ngousso colony was created in 2006 from the broods of approximately 100 wild-caught pure An. coluzzii females in Cameroon (

, Kingan et al, Genes 2019, 10, 62; doi:10.3390/genes10010062 ). The colony is partially inbred, and has been used extensively in experimental infection studies.
