Partner study description

The Target Malaria project contributed samples from collections made in three villages separated by at most 30km: Bana (11.233, -4.472), Souroukoudinga (11.235, -4.535) and Pala (11.150, -4.235). These collections were made in July-August 2012, July and October 2014, and January, February and April 2015. The area is agricultural, with rice-growing areas near Bana and Souroukoudinga, and a large mango grove near Pala. Female mosquitoes were collected by human landing catch, pyrethrum spray collection or aspiration. Males were collected by swarm netting. Both An. gambiae and An. coluzzii (1) were collected. Specimens were stored in 80% ethanol and DNA was extracted using the DNeasy Tissue Kit (Qiagen) or using a simple CTAB method.
