E-MEXP-3987 - Transcription profiling by array of nine Anopheles gambiae populations sampled from different environments in Tanzania to investigate insecticide resistance mechanisms
Released on 31 October 2013, last updated on 3 June 2014
Nine Anopheles gambiae populations were sampled in three areas of Tanzania showing contrasting agriculture activity, urbanization and usage of insecticides for vector control. Insecticide resistance levels were measured in larvae and adults through bioassays with deltamethrin, DDT and bendiocarb. A microarray approach was used for identifying transcription level variations associated to different environments and insecticide resistance. the Ifakara strain originating from central Tanzania and susceptible to all insecticides was used as a reference strain.
