Seasonal variation of Ace-1R mutation in Anopheles gambiae s. l. populations from Atacora region in Benin, West Africa
The spread of Ace-1R mutation that confers carbamate and organophosphate resistance in Anopheles gambiae s.l. is a critical issue for malaria vector control. The aim of this study was to investigate the seasonal variation of the Ace-1R mutation in A. gambiae s. l populations. The mosquitoes analyzed were collected by human landing catches (HLC) in five districts in the department of Atacora from May 2011 to June 2013....
