Abstract

RODRIGUES, Rosangela Aparecida; AZEREDO-ESPIN, Ana Maria Lima de  and  TORRES, Tatiana Teixeira. Microsatellite markers for population genetic studies of the blowfly Chrysomya putoria (Diptera: Calliphoridae). Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 2009, vol.104, n.7, pp. 1047-1050. ISSN 0074-0276.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02762009000700020.

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 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.

Keywords : invasive species; forensic entomology; myiasis.
