DNA based methods become important in the identification of insects when we don’t have complete sample for identification and the available sample is either broken or fragmented and unable to provide complete information necessary for the identification. We have number of DNA based techniques which can be used for the identification of insect’s samples. We are therefore presenting here the review of various DNA based techniques commonly used in the species identification.

DNA-based identification of forensically important Chrysomyinae (Diptera: Calliphoridae).

Identification of the forensically important flies (Diptera: Muscidae) based on cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) gene in China

DNA-based method can be used as a supplemental means of morphological method and genetic variations found on COI can be applied not only to identify the forensically important species, but also to understand the taxonomic positions of the sarcophagine species.

A DNA-based approach to the identification of insect species used for postmortem interval estimation.

This work sequenced 2300 base pairs of mitochondrial DNA from each of three blowfly species, finding abundant DNA sequence differences that can unambiguously identify the immature larval stages of these insects.

Validation of a DNA-based method for identifying Chrysomyinae (Diptera: Calliphoridae) used in a death investigation

This method appears to be an accurate and robust technique for identifying chrysomyine species from a death investigation in this geographic region and caution is required in applying this method at very high latitudes in North America.

DNA-based methods for the identification of insect vectors.

In this review, the DNA-based techniques developed for the identification of Anopheles gambiae complex mosquitoes are used to illustrate the power of these methods, although, as the review demonstrates, the technology is directly applicable to many other mosquito or insect vectors.

DNA-based identification and molecular systematics of forensically important Sarcophagidae (Diptera).

A database of mitochondrial DNA sequence data is developed that makes it possible to identify all sarcophagid species likely to be found feeding on a human corpse at an urban location in Canada or the USA.
