Microsatellite markers and genotyping procedures for Anopheles gambiae

Parasitol Today. 1999 Jan;15(1):33-7. doi: 10.1016/s0169-4758(98)01360-x.


The procedures outlined in this article by Rui Wang, Fotis Kafatos and Liangbiao Zheng are well suited to studies of field mosquito populations, and also to the genetic mapping of qualitative and quantitative traits of Anopheles gambiae, a major malaria vector in Africa. An accurate, reproducible and high-throughput microsatellite genotyping procedure has been established.
