Abstract: Aedes‐borne arboviruses have spread globally with outbreaks of vast impact on human populations and health systems. The West African archipelago of Cape Verde had its first outbreak of Dengue in 2009, at the time the largest recorded in Africa, and was one of the few African countries affected by the Zika virus epidemic. Aedes aegypti was the mosquito vector involved in both outbreaks. We performed a phylogeographic and population genetics study of A. aegypti in Cape Verde in order to infer the geographic orig… Show more

“…In our results, using a larger dataset of global samples, we also observed two distinct clades contain isolates from all continents, with the Cape Verdean samples located within either clade. A previous study analysing the genetic diversity of samples collected from Cape Verde suggested a West African origin of local mosquitoes [18]. Several of the haplotypes detected in our sample collection were also present in the previously reported Cape Verdean samples.…”

“…Mitochondrial DNA sequencing analysis of Ae. aegypti mosquitoes from Africa indicated a possible West African origin of the Cape Verdean population [ 18 ]. With heavy human and goods trans-Atlantic traffic coming in and out of São Vicente, particularly during the 16th to 17th centuries, it is possible that the Ae.…”

“…In Cape Verde, mutation V410L was not detected whereas mutations V1016I and F1534C were found at low frequency (� 3.0%) in Santiago, the main island of the archipelago. Previous analysis of samples collected in the same island in 2007, 2010 and 2012 did not reveal the presence of any of these mutations PLOS NEGLECTED TROPICAL DISEASES [13,29]. This suggests a very recent origin of kdr mutations in this island.…”

“…A recent phylogeographic study suggests that Ae. aegypti from Cape Verde originated from populations of Senegal [29]. One cannot rule out the possibility of a recent introduction of kdr mutations from neighbouring regions of mainland West Africa, specifically of mutation F1534C found in the city of Praia, where an international airport and port are located.…”
