Molecular studies on Indian mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae): A review


Devinder Singh, Navneet Kaur Rai, Divya Vashist

Molecular studies are recognized as a useful tool in species identification and sequence disparity. Nuclear region and mitochondrial genome has been analyzed and studied comprehensively all over the world. In this review, a detailed description of the molecular work done by several workers in India has been provided. It can be concluded that, the molecular studies on mosquitoes in India focused more on COI, ITS1 and ITS2 region and rest of the molecular markers are overlooked.
