Veni, vidi, vici: on the origin and expansion of the mosquito Aedes aegypti in Madeira Island (Portugal)

Dataset

Description

Commonly known as the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti invaded Madeira Island in 2005 and was the vector of the island’s first dengue outbreak in 2012. We have studied genetic variation at 16 microsatellites and 2 mitochondrial DNA genes in temporal samples of Madeira Island, in order to assess the origin of the invasion and the population structure of this mosquito vector.
