Data from: The microsporidian parasite Vavraia culicis as a potential late life-acting control agent of malaria

Lena M. Lorenz & Jacob C. Koella
Microsporidian parasites are being considered as alternatives to conventional insecticides for malaria control. They should reduce malaria transmission by shortening the lifespan of female mosquitoes and thus killing them before they transmit malaria. As the parasite replicates throughout the mosquito’s life, it should have little detrimental effects on young mosquitoes, thus putting less selection pressure on the hosts to evolve resistance. Here we examined these expectations for the microsporidian Vavraia culicis on Anopheles gambiae Giles...
