New PopBio data

Ten new insecticide resistance projects have been added to PopBio and a beta/prototype genotype view is available for testing. This shows allele frequencies for commonly assayed variant loci such as kdr and Ace1.

  • Temporal distribution and insecticide resistance profile of two major arbovirus vectors Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus in Yaoundé, the capital city of Cameroon (VBP0000202: details, map, 8 collections, 100 samples, 99 phenotypes, 0 genotypes)
  • Mapping insecticide resistance and characterization of resistance mechanisms in Anopheles arabiensis (Diptera: Culicidae) in Ethiopia (VBP0000204: details, map, 26 collections, 480 samples, 448 phenotypes, 96 genotypes)
  • Local selection in the presence of high levels of gene flow: Evidence of heterogeneous insecticide selection pressure across Ugandan Culex quinquefasciatus populations (VBP0000205: details, map, 4 collections, 162 samples, 0 phenotypes, 9410 genotypes)
  • Insecticide resistance status of three malaria vectors, Anopheles gambiae (s.l.), An. funestus and An. mascarensis, from the south, central and east coasts of Madagascar (VBP0000206: details, map, 232 collections, 232 samples, 217 phenotypes, 45 genotypes)
  • Current Susceptibility Status of Malaysian Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae) Against DDT, Propoxur, Malathion, and Permethrin (VBP0000207: details, map, 28 collections, 28 samples, 112 phenotypes, 0 genotypes)
  • First molecular genotyping of voltage gated sodium channel alleles in Culex quinquefasciatus populations in Malaysia (VBP0000208: details, map, 14 collections, 14 samples, 0 phenotypes, 42 genotypes)
  • Cow-baited tents are highly effective in sampling diverse Anopheles malaria vectors in Cambodia (VBP0000209: details, map, 3 collections, 225 samples, 94 phenotypes, 0 genotypes)
  • Insecticide resistance status of malaria vectors in Lao PDR (VBP0000210: details, map, 133 collections, 250 samples, 285 phenotypes, 84 genotypes)
  • Insecticide resistance in Anopheles arabiensis from Ethiopia (2012–2016): a nationwide study for insecticide resistance monitoring (VBP0000211: details, map, 33 collections, 369 samples, 297 phenotypes, 213 genotypes)
  • Malaria vectors in the Democratic Republic of the Congo: the mechanisms that confer insecticide resistance in Anopheles gambiae and Anopheles funestus (VBP0000203: details, map, 2 collections, 31 samples, 28 phenotypes, 7 genotypes)

35 projects have been updated (most of these were to make the genotype data consistent for visualisaion in the new genotype map view)
