We describe the use of DNA reassociation kinetics to determine the total genome size and complexity together with the individual complexity and copy number of the single copy, middle repetitive and highly repeated DNA fractions of cell line and larval DNA from the mosquito, Aedes aegypti. The genome of Ae. aegypti is both large and complex, being one third the size of the human genome, and exhibits a short period interspersed repeat pattern. The implications of patterns of sequence arrangement… CONTINUE READING
