Partner study description
Adult mosquitoes were collected at Wali Kunda in the rural, central river region of The Gambia (13.567, -14.917). The area is 180km from the sea, on the south bank of the River Gambia, in flat Sudan savannah with a small fishing village (and a research field station) as well as rice fields and swamplands. The dominant Anopheles vector species in this region is An. coluzzii (1). Mosquitoes were captured using human landing collections both inside and outside huts for 19 days in October and November 2012. Mosquitoes were stored in RNAlater or dried over silica gel and stored at -20C.
