Microsatellite markers were isolated and developed from Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus Say (Diptera: Culicidae) sampled in Johannesburg, South Africa, to identify those that are broadly useful for analyzing Cx. pipiens complex populations between continents. Suitable loci should be 1) inherited in a codominant Mendelian manner, 2) polymorphic, 3) selectively neutral, 4) randomly associated, 5) without null alleles, and 6) applicable across broad regions and between diverse biotypes. Loci in Cx… CONTINUE READING
