Microarray EMBL A. gambiae MMC2 12k v1.0
Description The MMC2 microarray is a spotted PCR amplicon array. The amplicons are 150-500 bp long and mostly represent single exons located preferably close to the 3' ends of coding sequences of 12,500 predicted genes in the A. gambiae genome.

Experiments
Name Description
Plasmodium berghei infections (Mendes et al., 2011) The transcriptional response of Anopheles gambiae to varying Plasmodium berghei (rodent malaria parasite) infection intensities was measured at three time-points.
Plasmodium falciparum infections (Mendes et al., 2011) The transcriptional response of Anopheles gambiae to varying Plasmodium falciparum infection intensities was measured at three time-points. The parasite strains were obtained from asymptomatic carriers in Cameroon. Local mosquitoes were used to create the laboratory colony.
Sex-bias during development (Magnusson et al., 2011) Transgenic G3 strain Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes expressing a GFP construct were sexed at early larval stage. Female vs. male expression ratios were assayed at three larval stages and in pupae and adults.
