This Week in Science

In this week's Science, an international team of researchers analyzed the genome sequences of 16 species of anopheline mosquitoes for insights into the spread of malaria. They sequenced and assembled the genomes and transcriptomes of 16 anophelines, spanning about 100 million years of evolution. Between roughly 11,000 and 16,000 protein-coding genes for each species were generated by genome annotation, supported with RNA sequencing transcriptomes.
