The genome assembly presented here (CA07042009FLX_Ti, May 2010) was generated by the Laboratorio Nacional de Computacao Cientifica in Petropolis, Brazil. The whole genome shotgun assembly of Roche 454 sequences was accomplished using the Celera Assember and has been deposited in GenBank using the accession ADMH00000000. The assembly is estimated to be 175Mb in size or which only 113Mb have been submitted to GenBank in 3990 contigs, no scaffolds are available currently.

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.
