This assembly was generated by the Laboratorio Nacional de Computacao Cientifica in Petropolis, Brazil from whole genome shotgun assembly of Roche 454 sequences using the Celera Assember. Changes from the previous assembly reflect additional 60 scaffolds which were submitted to GenBank not in the original submission to VectorBase.

Originally isolated from Brazil. The Coari strain of An. darling were collected from the shores of Lake Coari, close to the city of Coari in Amazonas State. This area has had a high malaria incidence reported over the past 15 year and entomological surveys suggest that transmission is almost exclusively via An. darling. Female mosquitoes were collected from the Santa Luzia Buiuçuzinho community approximately 20km from Coari. Gravid females were allowed to spawn and DNA extracted from 4th stage larvae.
