Predicting the age of mosquitoes using transcriptional profiles. | World Mosquito Program Skip to main content
Peter E Cook et al., 2007, Nature Protocols

Female mosquito age is of central importance to the transmission of a range of human pathogens. The transcriptional age-grading protocol presented in this paper was developed in Aedes aegypti, principally as a research tool. Age predictions are made on the basis of transcriptional data collected from mosquitoes of known age.
