Approximate location and orientation of primers (black arrows) with respect to their target exons, in the context of gene models (or portions thereof) based on the An. gambiae genome. Models were exported from the Transcript View available in VectorBase http://www.vectorbase.org webcite; protein-coding exons are indicated by black rectangles with Roman numerals; introns by black lines. Gene names and corresponding An. gambiae gene ID (AGAP number) are provided at top left. Not to-scale.
