Using DNA chips for identification of tephritid pest species

By Yen-Hou Chen, Lu-Yan Liu, Wei-Huang Tsai, David S Haymer and Kuang-Hui Lu


The ability correctly to identify species in a rapid and reliable manner is critical in many situations. For insects in particular, the primary tools for such identification rely on adult-stage morphological characters. For a number of reasons, however, there is a clear need for alternatives. This paper reports on the development of a new method employing DNA biochip technology for the identification of pest species within the family Tephritidae
