Anopheles coluzzii (AcolM1)

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.

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.

Maureen Coetzee, Richard H. Hunt, Richard Wilkerson, Alessandra Della Torre, Mamadou B. Coulibaly & Nora J. Besansky. 2013. Anopheles coluzzii and Anopheles amharicus, new members of the Anopheles gambiaecomplex. Zootaxa 3619 (3): 246--274.

Mali-NIH strain

The Anopheles gambiae M Mali-NIH colony was established from blood-fed adult females collected resting inside houses in Niono, Mali in November 2005. Approximately 80 isofemale families molecularly identified as An. gambiae M form were used to establish the colony, which was subsequently karyotyped as 2Rbc/bc; 2La/a. The A. gambiae M Mali-NIH colony is currently maintained from the BEI resources web portal.
