The Ag3.4: Anopheles gambiae data resource contains single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) calls, copy number variant (CNV) calls and SNP haplotypes from whole-genome sequencing of 1817 mosquitoes.

Whole-genome sequencing and variant calling#
All samples in
Ag3.4 have been sequenced individually to high coverage using Illumina technology at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. These sequence data have then been analysed to identify genetic variants such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). After variant calling, both the samples and the variants have been through a range of quality control analyses, to ensure the data are of high quality. Both the raw sequence data and the curated variant calls are openly available for download and analysis.
For further information about the sequencing and variant calling methods used, please see the methods page.
Ag3.4 are hosted by several different services.
The SNP data have also been uploaded to Google Cloud, and can be analysed directly within the cloud without having to download or copy any data, including via free interactive computing services such as MyBinder and Google Colab. Further information about analysing these data in the cloud is provided in the cloud data access guide.
The samples included in
Ag3.4 have been organised into 3 sample sets.
Each sample set corresponds to a set of mosquito specimens from a contributing study. Study details can be found in the partner studies webpages listed above.
Here is a more detailed breakdown of the samples contained within this sample set, summarised by country, year of collection, and species:
Note that there can be multiple sampling sites represented within the same sample set.
We hope this page has provided a useful introduction to the
Ag3.4 data resource. If you would like to start working with these data, please visit the cloud data access guide or the data download guide or continue browsing the other documentation on this site.
