 en Microsatellite markers for population genetic studies of the blowfly Chrysomya putoria check for this species in other resources (Diptera: Calliphoridae)
Rodrigues, Rosangela Aparecida; de Azeredo-Espin, Ana Maria Lima & Torres, Tatiana Teixeira

Abstract

The investigation of the genetic variation and population structure of Chrysomya species is of great interest for both basic and applied research. However, very limited genetic information is available for this genus across its geographical distribution. Here, we describe 12 polymorphic microsatellite loci isolated from Chrysomya putoria check for this species in other resources with expected heterozygosities ranging from 0.1402-0.8312. These markers are of potential applied interest for forensic entomologists and for the characterisation of the genetic structure of C. putoria from recently colonised regions, with great promise for understanding the colonisation dynamics and spread of the genus Chrysomya in the New World.
