Résumé

Anopheline mosquitoes are the major vectors of human malaria. Mosquito-parasite interactions are a critical aspect of disease transmission and a potential target for malaria control. Mosquitoes vary in their innate ability to support development of the malaria parasite, but the molecular mechanisms that determine vector competence are poorly understood. This area of research has been revolutionized by recent advances in the mosquito genome characterization and by the development of new tools for functional gene analysis.
