alexa Genetic Relationship among Indian Termites Based on DNA Sequence of Mitochondrial 12S Ribosomal RNA Gene

OMICS International organises 3000+ Global Conferenceseries Events every year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

Genetic Relationship among Indian Termites Based on DNA Sequence of Mitochondrial 12S Ribosomal RNA Gene

Partial 12S gene fragments were amplified by using specific primers in nine species of termites of the genus Odontotermes, Microtermes and Microcerotermes (Isoptera: Termitidae: Macrotermitinae), and the PCR products were subjected to sequence analysis. The sequences obtained were characterized to see the frequencies of each nucleotide bases, and high A+T content was observed. The divergence of the species was found be lower within the same family, and highest with species from the family Rhinotermitidae. Phylogenetic tree drawn on the basis of distance Neighbour-joining method revealed clustering of individuals according to their genera and families.
