Effective population sizes of a major vector of human diseases, Aedes aegypti



12 microsatellite markers 14,888 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) to empirically estimate the effective population size (Ne) in Aedes aegypti, the major vector of yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, Zika virus. Temporal sampling methods were used to estimate Ne on a global dataset made up of 46 samples of Ae. aegypti that included multiple time points from 17 widely distributed geographic localities. This data has been processed and imported into VectorBase’s Population Biology resource.
