The Anopheles gambiae str. PEST whole genome shotgun (WGS) project has the project accession AAAB00000000. This version of the project (01) has the accession number AAAB01000000, and consists of sequences AAAB01000001-AAAB01069724.

Accessions AAAB01000001-AAAB01008987 constitute the genome assembly. Some scaffolds are now marked in the Definition line as probably representing either contaminating bacterial DNA or alternative assemblies of a region also present in another larger scaffold; they have no annotation of gene features. Accessions AAB01008988-AAAB01069724 are additional short contigs that we were unwilling to designate as unique in the genome and are unable to place within a larger scaffold in the assembly process. This happens because they may be repetitive, and we are very cautious about placing them incorrectly; and/or because they have very few Celera mate pairs to allow us to place them with confidence. Strings of n's in a record represent gaps between contigs within a scaffold, and the length of each string corresponds to the approximate length of the gap. VectorBase (, a NIAID Bioinformatics Resource Center, is responsible for the assembled genome sequence and its annotation. For more information, contact Annotation was updated on the contigs in May 2011.
