Evolutionary Genetics of Mosquitoes
The Slotman Laboratory focusses primarily on the evolutionary and population genetics of malaria transmitting mosquitoes. Current projects are investigating the genetic basis of host preference of Anopheles gambiae; the population structure of Anopheles melas; the impact of malaria control on the effective population size of mosquitoes; and the evolution of behavioral resistance against insecticides. We are also investigating the regulation olfaction genes during host seeking of Aedes aegypti, mosquitoes. Finally, we are involved in the entomological monitoring component of the Bioko Island Malaria Control Project.
