Unlocking the vast genomic diversity stored in natural history collections would create unprecedented opportunities for genome-scale evolutionary, phylogenetic, domestication and population genomic studies. Many researchers have been discouraged from using historical specimens in molecular studies because of both generally limited success of DNA extraction(More)
The Old World bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner), and the corn earworm, H. zea (Boddie), are two of the most important agricultural pests in the world. Diagnosing these two species is difficult-adults can only be separated with a complex dissection, and larvae cannot be identified to species using morphology, necessitating the use of geographic origin(More)
Rapid and reliable tools for detection and identification of plant parasitic nematodes are needed to prevent the introduction and spread of quarantine nematodes. A fast and simple DNA extraction method for target nematodes in nematode suspensions obtained from soil samples and a new quantitative real-time PCR method (qPCR) for the specific detection,(More)
