Partner study description
Collections were taken from multiple sites on the island of Mayotte. Samples were collected as larvae during March-April 2011 in temporary pools by dipping. Sites included Mtsanga Charifou (-12.991, 45.156) and Combani (-12.779, 45.143). Larvae were stored in 80% ethanol prior to DNA extraction. All specimens contributed were An. gambiae (1). Samples were identified as males or females by the sequencing read coverage of the X chromosome using LookSeq (2).
