Preserving mosquitoes for DNA barcoding

I would appreciate member's comments on preserving adult mosquitoes for DNA barcoding. Mosquito larvae in ethanol are OK, but adults?? very fragile and small.

CBOL can send invitations to join the MBI group to all the people at the conference who gave talks about mosquitoes. Are there other sources of potential members?Once there is a reasonable number of…Continue

Dear all, 

I did my Ph.D., in Butterflies and host plant DNA Barcoding and currently i working as PDF under the guidance of Prof. K. Murugan

My research topic is Endemic mosquitoes in Nilgiris, India.

In this connection i need Species identification Keys of mosquitoes or Culicidae species kindly help me

Thanking you,

with regards, 

Dr. C. Vadivalagan

Currently working on barcoding of Anopheles species of Mizoram, India

Monitoring of Culicidae and other terrestrial arthropod taxa using next-gen (environmental sampling) DNA barcoding methods is the long-term objective of a mini-bioblitz we are planning for this summer.  This field season, we will be sampling Culicidae as well as other groups, obtaining determinations on voucher specimens (for which I am seeking collaboration), and submitting these specimens to a DNA barcoding lab to build a regional DNA barcode library.

Are you looking for collection and archiving methods?  Basic taxonomy to anchor your sequences is quite important for validating your results.  If so, I can point you to a summary of field and laboratory methods.

Do you have a "nex-gen" method on the horizon? I too am interested in this, especially for Anopheles.

I am looking for help with inventorying and obtaining DNAbarcodes of mosquitoes from the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge thissummer.  This is part of a larger arthropod inventory initiative on therefuge, but the Culicidae is a priority group because of their abundance, ecologicalimportance, and prevalence in samples we obtained for our long-term monitoringefforts.  We are building a referencelibrary of DNA barcodes for the refuge to set the stage for monitoring usingnext-generation DNA barcoding methods.

is there any single nucleotide polymorphism found in mosquito bar codes
Comment by sambashiva daravath on June 15, 2010 at 11:51pm
respected members am working on molecular phylogenetic analysis of mosquitoes. i would like to work along with you.

Anyone interested in mosquitoes should also consider joining the HealthBOL group. :-)
