A team from Italy, the UK, the US, and Switzerland consider sex-biased gene expression evolution in Anopheles mosquito species capable of transmitting malaria-causing parasites. The researchers did RNA sequencing on several tissues from four Anopheles species, focusing on features for genes with enhanced expression in female mosquitos, which feed on blood and may transmit parasites in the process. Based on gene expression and sequence data for An.
