A scientific note on the ITS-1 region of Apis mellifera subspecies


Several molecular markers have being widely used in insect molecular systematics in the last 20 years; among them nuclear DNA markers as the internal transcribed spacers (ITS1 and ITS2) of the nuclear rDNA (revision in Caterino et al., 2000). The sequence of these regions, which lie between functional 18S, 5.8S and 28S ribosomal genes, has proven suitable… (More)
