(b) When was the current Anopheles gambiae genome assembly last revised?

(a) Go to metazoa.ensembl.org. Open the drop down list or click on View full list of all Ensembl Metazoa species. In a latin binomial species name, the first word represents the genus. Type Anopheles into the filter box in the top left to find all genomes with this word in the binomial.

There are 22 Anopheles genomes (some species are represented by more than one than one genome).

(b) Click on Anopheles gambiae, then on More information and statistics.

The genome was revised in February 2006.
