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.
