Abstract

Restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) markers derived from the yellow fever mosquito, , were used in hybridizations to genomic DNA of the following mosquito species: , and . Interspecific hybridization with probes varied from 50% () to 100% () under high stringency conditions. We demonstrated the usefulness of using RFLP profiles to examine genetic diversity between mosquito populations; RFLP markers were used to examine genetic relatedness between 10 laboratory strains of as well as between nine populations representing four subspecies. These results indicate that many RFLP markers should have direct applicability in gaining a better understanding of genome structure in other mosquito species, including RFLP linkage mapping and determinations of genetic relatedness among field populations.
