Parasitoids , predators and PCR : the use of diagnostic molecular markers in biological control of Arthropods

  title={Parasitoids , predators and PCR : the use of diagnostic molecular markers in biological control of Arthropods},
  author={Tara D Gariepy and Ulrich Kuhlmann and Cedric Gillott and Martin Erlandson},
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) revolutionized the field of diagnostics, and today it has routine applications in medical, veterinary, forensic and botanical sciences. The fields of biological control and insect pest management have generally been slow to adopt PCR-based diagnostics in comparison with other fields of science. However, there has been increasing interest in the use of molecular diagnostic tools in arthropod biological control. In applied entomology, molecular techniques have… CONTINUE READING
