Zusammenfssung

Wir beschreiben Möglichkeiten auf dem Gebiet der molekularen Artidentifizierung sowie den Nutzen einer differenziellen Genexpression zur Altersbestimmung von Puppen und des Diapausestatus von Larven forensisch relevanter Schmeißfliegenarten.

Abstract

We here present tools in molecular species identification and the utility of differentially expressed genes in age determination of forensically important blowfly pupae and diapausing larvae.
