The dramatic reduction in sequencing costs has resulted in many initiatives to sequence certain organisms and populations. These initiatives aim to not only sequence and assemble genomes but also to perform a more broader analysis of the population structure. As part of the Anopheline Genome Consortium, which has a vested interest in studying anpopheline mosquitoes, we developed novel methods and tools to further the communities goals. We provide a brief description of these methods and tools as well as assess the contributions that each offers to the broader study of comparative genomics.
