Proteome IDi <p>The proteome identifier (UPID) is the unique identifier assigned to the set of proteins that constitute the <a href="http://www.uniprot.org/manual/proteomes%5Fmanual">proteome</a>. It consists of the characters 'UP' followed by 9 digits, is stable across releases and can therefore be used to cite a UniProt proteome.<p><a href='/help/proteome_id' target='_top'>More...</a></p>UP000008820

Buscoi <p>The Benchmarking Universal Single-Copy Ortholog (BUSCO) assessment tool is used, for eukaryotic and bacterial proteomes, to provide quantitative measures of UniProt proteome data completeness in terms of expected gene content. BUSCO scores include percentages of complete (C) single-copy (S) genes, complete (C) duplicated (D) genes, fragmented (F) and missing (F) genes, as well as the total number of orthologous clusters (n) used in the BUSCO assessment.</p> C:99.4%[S:61.4%,D:38%],F:0.2%,M:0.4%,n:3285 diptera_odb10
Completenessi <p>Complete Proteome Detector (CPD) is an algorithm which employs statistical evaluation of the completeness and quality of proteomes in UniProt, by looking at the sizes of taxonomically close proteomes. Possible values are 'Standard', 'Close to Standard' and 'Outlier'.</p> Close to standard (high value)

Aedes aegypti is the principal vector of the etiological agents of yellow fever, dengue fever and chikungunya fever. In 1901, Walter Reed and colleagues showed that yellow fever was transmitted by Aedes aegypti. Their work was based on Carlos Finlay's hypothesis that mosquito bites could transmit the organism causing the disease.

Due to its easy adaptation to laboratory culture it is the most studied species within the Culicinae, and has extensively contributed to our understanding of mosquito biology, physiology, genetics, and vector competence.

The Aedes aegypti complete genome sequence was first published in 2007. About 47% of the genome consists of transposable elements, probably contributing to the expansion in size and organization of the Aedes aegypti genome over time.
