Mosquito Collection (DNA Extracts) (NEON-MOSC-DNA)

SAMPLES ARE CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE. Please contact the NEON Biorepository for information about when these samples will become available. This collection contains genetic extracts from the Canadian Centre for DNA Barcoding for select mosquitoes captured during CO2 trapping (NEON sample class: mos_barcoding_in.geneticSampleID). When adult mosquitoes are active, sampling occurs (via CDC light traps) every two weeks at core sites and every four weeks at relocatable sites. A sampling bout consists of two trapping nights and the intervening day for up to ten plots per site. Mosquito legs are collected from up to 10 individuals per species per domain. Tissues are preserved in an appropriate tissue vial and up to 95 tissue samples per domain are shipped to the Canadian Centre for DNA Barcoding. Barcodes of cytochrome oxidase I will be generated per specimen. See related links below for protocols and NEON related data products.
