Resumo

Anopheles aquasalis is a major malaria vector in coastal areas of Southand Central America where it breeds preferentially in brackish water. This species isvery susceptible to Plasmodium vivax and it has been already incriminated asresponsible vector in malaria outbreaks. There has been no high-throughputinvestigation into the sequencing of An. aquasalis genes, transcripts and proteinsdespite its epidemiological relevance. Here we describe the sequencing, assembly andannotation of the An. aquasalis transcriptome.Methodology/Principal Findings:A total of 419 thousand cDNA sequence reads,encompassing 164 million nucleotides, were assembled in 7544 contigs of e 2sequences, and 1999 singletons. The majority of the An. aquasalis transcripts encodeproteins with their closest counterparts in another neotropical malaria vector,An.Background:Anopheles aquasalis is a major malaria vector in coastal areas of Southand Central America where it breeds preferentially in brackish water.
