The Aedes aegypti LVP_AGWG strain genome sequence was produced at Rockefeller University by the Aedes aegypti Genome Working Group (AGWG). PacBio reads were assembled by FALCON-Unzip, scaffolded by Hi-C, and gap-filling and polishing performed by PBJ and arrow. The assembly presented here (AaegL5.0 June 2017) is chromosome level, and consists of 2,310 scaffolds, totalling 1.278 Gigabases, with a contig N50 of 11.8 Mb and supercontig N50 size of 409.8 Mb.

The assembly effectively supercedes the AaegL3 assembly, and is the supported assembly for VectorBase.
