Practical applications of molecular biological species identification of forensically important flies.

Abstract

Species identification of the early colonizers on a corpse, such as Calliphoridae and Sarcophagidae, provides useful information for estimating the postmortem interval (PMI). However, the morphology of adult flies and nymphs is very similar among species of the same genus, and for many forensic scientists accurate identification is very difficult within… (More)
