Interrogating genomic and transcriptomic datasets to reveal the genetic basis of insecticide resistance in malaria vectors

Project summary

During his Fellowship, Tiago is working with next-generation sequencing data on Anopheles gambiae, the main vector of malaria. This supports his long-term interests in understanding speciation within the Anopheles species complex and, most importantly, the genetic basis of resistance to insecticides – one of the main obstacles in the control of malaria.
