Diversity and genetic structure of Panstrongylus geniculatus Latreille, 1811, Triatoma dimidiata Latreille, 1811 (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae) and Trypanosoma cruzi in two regions of Colombia

Project: Research/Creation Project

Project Details


This work is aimed to characterize the structure and genetic diversity of T. dimidiata, P. geniculatus and T. cruzi collected in Boyacá and the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (SNSM), using New Generation Sequencing (NGS). The execution, management and control of the project oversee the Universidad del Rosario, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Microbiological Research Group-UR (GIMUR). The individuals will be collected in the field and the activities will be covered by the framework collection permit issued by the ANLA (Decree 1376 of 2013). This project does not require permission to access genetic resources as it is non-commercial basic research in ecology and evolution.
