This data release includes copy number variant (CNV) calls from whole-genome sequencing of 2,784 wild-caught mosquitoes collected from 19 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, and 297 mosquitoes comprising parents and progeny of 15 lab crosses. Three mosquito species are represented: Anopheles gambiae, Anopheles coluzzii and Anopheles arabiensis. All mosquitoes were sequenced using Illumina technology by the Wellcome Sanger Institute Parasites and Microbes programme.
