Analysis of population genetic structure of Indian Anopheles culicifacies species A using microsatellite markers

This is the first and successful attempt to test the microsatellite markers developed for population genetic analysis of An. culicifacies A. Host feeding and breeding habits of species A suggest that factors other than ecological and geographical barriers were responsible for the genetic differentiation that has been observed between the populations.

Symptomatic patients with more than one P. vivax infection were followed up, and blood samples were collected from primary and recurrent infections. DNA extracted from infected blood samples was analyzed for restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) in genes encoding csp and msp3alpha, as well as size variation in seven microsatellites.
