Low genetic diversity among pea aphid (Acyrthosiphon pisum) biotypes of different plant affiliation


Genetic diversity in the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum was investigated by a restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis of three maternally inherited genomes (mitochondrial DNA and plasmids of the symbiotic bacteria Buchnera). Twenty-nine parthenogenetic clones of three A. pisum biotypes, defined by their capacity to use the legume crops pea… (More)
