Ag3.0 (Ag1000G phase 3) SNP data release
Project: Ag1000G

Released on 11 Feb 2021.


This data release includes sample metadata, sequence read alignments and genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) 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.
