Igor Sharakhov, an associate professor of entomology in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences said that the physical genome map developed in this study will guide efforts to significantly improve the genome assembly for the yellow fever mosquito
and will facilitate more advanced studies of the genome organization and chromosome evolution in mosquitoes.
