Evaluation of the 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 Project

Project Details


Characterize the structure and genetic diversity of Triatoma dimidiata, P. geniculatus and Trypanosoma cruzi collected in Boyacá and the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (SNSM), using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS).

The execution, management and control of the project are in charge of the Universidad del Rosario, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Microbiological Research Group-UR (GIMUR).

The individuals were collected in the field and the activities are 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 the area of ecology and evolution.
