This assembly was generated using 101 bp paired-end Illumina HiSeq2000 reads generated from two libraries: a 180 bp insert ‘fragment’ library and a 1.5 kb ‘jump’ library. Sequencing template for the fragment and jump libraries was derived from genomic DNA extracted from a single individual, which was preserved by freezing at -80C. Native genomic DNA was used for the fragment library and whole genome amplified DNA was used for the jump library. Reads were assembled at the Broad Institute using the ALLPATHS LG algorithm, with the Haploidify option enabled to address high allelic heterozygosity in the template.

Originally isolated from wild individuals collected in Kenya (Kikuyu, 2010), mosquitoes were donated by Laban Njoroge and Charles Mbogo (KEMRI, Kenya), and Samantha O'Loughlin and Austin Burt (Imperial College London). There is no colony.
