Population genetic structure of Aedes aegypti subspecies in selected geographical locations in Sudan
Although knowledge of the composition and genetic diversity of disease vectors is important for their management, this is limiting in many instances. The genetic structure of the Ae. aegypti subspecies population and the gene flow among them, which may be interpreted as the mosquito vector’s capacity for dispersal, were revealed in this study. These findings will help in the improvement of dengue epidemiology research including information on the identity of the target vector/subspecies and the arboviruses vector surveillance program.
