VectorBase is a NIAID-funded Bioinformatics Resource Center focused on the invertebrate vectors of human pathogens. VectorBase works with the sequencing centers and the research community to provide genome annotation for a number of vector genomes. We participate in the VectorBase consortium and represent a number of genomes annotated by VectorBase within Ensembl Genomes.
