DNA barcodes of sugarcane Aleyrodids [Full subscriber]

Abstract Sugarcane Aleyrodids, Aleurolobus barodensis and Neomaskellia bergii are the sap sucking hemipteran pests of economic importance. Possible threat from the Aleyrodids and lack of information on their DNA barcodes in the public domain, have driven us to develop DNA barcodes for both the species. The barcodes will not only serve as an ideal diagnostic kit for unambiguous identification of the species without the help of taxonomists, but also to unravel the cryptic species if any, in the population. In the present study, we developed DNA barcodes for both the Aleyrodids of sugarcane. The DNA barcode for N. bergii would…
