support for the Aedes aegypti L3 genome assembly will be discontinued

As noted in the VectorBase June 2018 release notes support for the Aedes aegypti L3 genome assembly will be discontinued after this release. The Ensembl Genomes site continues to host the old VectorBase AaegL3 browser and BioMart instance, but these resources will also be discontinued by Ensembl in early 2019. VectorBase continues to provide a number of other resources to help with the transition between assemblies and older gene sets.
