The production of Anopheles stephensi mosquitoes infected with the human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, involves the propagation of parasite and vector life cycles in parallel. It is a technically difficult procedure which requires considerable pre-planning and attention to detail in order to be successful. In particular, the precise timing of each stage of the process is of paramount importance to ensure a consistant supply of infected mosquitoes for the purposes of research. This 'timeline' is a valuble organisational tool in that it identifies, in short-hand form, precisely what tasks need to be performed on a day-to-day basis. In our laboratory, we have found this schematic representation to be useful not only as an aide memoire for the experienced parasitologist but also as a teaching aid to researchers new to malaria.
