The renaturation kinetics of nuclear DNA from the G3 colony of Anopheles gambiae Giles was studied to estimate the genome size and to determine the proportion of repeated sequences. An. gambiae has a haploid DNA content of 0.27 picograms or 2.6 x 10(8) basepairs. Analysis of reassociation kinetics indicated that the genome is composed of 61% single-copy and 33% repetitive sequences, with 6% foldback sequences.
