LSTM Researchers demonstrate adaptive potential of hybridization in mosquito species
Date:6/25/2014

oluzzii is thought to be able to exploit relatively stable agricultural breeding sites, which can extend malaria transmission far into the dry season. A. gambiae s.s. has traditionally been the more insecticide resistant, but, with transfer of insecticide resistance mutations, this is changing. In addition to concerns for vector control, this presented a near-unique opportunity to investigate the popular theory that new species form through the development of pockets of divergence in the genome containing speciation genes. Driven by technological advances and early work on the Anopheles gambiae species pair, this has become a rapidly-growing area of research in evolutionary biology.

LSTM's Professor Martin Donnelly, senior author of the study, said: "Through our collaboration with the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute we are learning how to use Anopheles genomic information to address questions of immense evolutionary and public health importance. This paper is just a foretaste of the studies that the vector community will be able to perform as the Anopheles gambiae 1000 Genome data sets become available (see http://www.malariagen.net/projects/vector/ag1000g)."

"This is a wonderful example of how new technologies for genome sequence analysis can elucidate specific biological questions in the field," says Professor Dominic Kwiatkowski, Head of the Malaria Programme at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, whose team have worked closely with LSTM on this project.
