Molecular identification and phylogenetic analysis of economically important acaroid mites (Acari: Astigmata: Acaroidea) in Korea
TLDR
The results suggest that the phylogenetic relationships inferred from the ITS2 region, rather than COI region, were similar to those derived based on their morphological classification. Expand
A new record of Amphitetranychus quercivorus (Acari: Tetranychidae) in Korea and molecular comparison with A. viennensis
TLDR
Comparison of the nucleotide sequences of ITS2 and COI revealed 90% and 89% similarities, respectively, between the two species, and species-specific primer sets for each species were designed using unique ITS2 sequences and then used to diagnose these two species under plant quarantine. Expand
Development of species‐specific primers for rapid diagnosis of Tetranychus urticae, T. kanzawai, T. phaselus and T. truncatus (Acari: Tetranychidae)
TLDR
These species‐specific primers can be applied in practice for the rapid and accurate diagnosis of spider mite species in plant quarantine and in agricultural fields. Expand
Inapparent dengue virus infection among students in Mandalay, Myanmar.
TLDR
This study explored the prevalence of inapparent dengue virus infection rate in urban monastic schools in Mandalay and showed that the rate of primary infection among inapp apparent DENV-infected children was high. Expand
Molecular identification of four Panonychus species (Acari: Tetranychidae) in Korea, including new records of P. caglei and P. mori
TLDR
Molecular analysis of the ITS2 and COI sequences revealed their divergences were slightly different among four species of the genus Panonychus and species‐specific primer sets were designed at the base on ITS2 sequences to precisely diagnose these four species at the molecular level. Expand
