Huge step forward in decoding genomes of small species: New technique enabled first high quality whole genome from a single mosquito
February 01, 2019
For the first time, scientists have read the whole genetic code of one single mosquito. Scientists worked to advance technology and lower the starting amount of DNA needed to just 'half a mosquito-worth', producing the first high quality whole genome of a single mosquito. The study in genes opens the door to understanding the true genetic diversity of insects and other arthropods.
