Identification of Africanized Honey Bee (Hymenoptera: Apidae) Mitochondrial DNA: Validation of a Rapid Polymerase Chain Reaction-Based Assay


Polymerase chain reaction(PCR)-ampliÞedmitochondrialDNA(mtDNA)assayshave been used in studies of the Africanization process in neotropical feral and managed honey bee populations. The approach has been adopted, in conjunction with morphometric analysis, to identify Africanized bees for regulatory purposes in the United States such as in California. In this… (More)
