  • Genome sequence of the tsetse fly (glossina morsitans): vector of African trypanosomiasis 

    Christoffels, Alan; Obiero, George F.; Harkins, Gordon William (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2014)
    Tsetse flies are the sole vectors of human African trypanosomiasis throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Both sexes of adult tsetse feed exclusively on blood and contribute to disease transmission. Notable differences between ...
  • Odorant and gustatory receptors in the tsetse fly Glossina morsitans morsitans 

    Obiero, George F.; Nyanjom, Steven R. G.; Mireji, Paul O.; Christoffels, Alan; Robertson, Hugh M.; Masiga, Daniel K. (PLOS, 2014)
    Tsetse flies use olfactory and gustatory responses, through odorant and gustatory receptors (ORs and GRs), to interact with their environment. Glossina morsitans morsitans genome ORs and GRs were annotated using homologs ...
