The mosquito Anopheles gambiae is the principal vector of malaria

Lineage: Eukaryota[8697]; Metazoa[4225]; Ecdysozoa[1838]; Arthropoda[1688]; Hexapoda[1557]; Insecta[1519]; Pterygota[1518]; Neoptera[1510]; Endopterygota[1401]; Diptera[291]; Nematocera[62]; Culicoidea[39]; Culicidae[37]; Anophelinae[33]; Anopheles[33]; Cellia[27]; Pyretophorus[10]; gambiae species complex[8]; Anopheles gambiae[1]
Anopheles gambiae is the primary vector that transmits human malaria, a disease that causes an estimated 200 million clinical cases and more than one million deaths annually. In order to eradicate malaria, the mosquito vector has become a target for study, since vector control has been a more attainable goal than anti-malarial drug treatments. More...
