Anopheline Diversity: Morphological and Molecular Variation of An. Subpictus in Rural and Urban Areas of West Bengal
Satarupa Paul, Amit Chattopadhyay and Pranab Kumar Banerjee
A systematic survey (March 2012 - Feb 2013)of Anopheline population in rural (Mogra) and urban (Dumdum) areas of West Bengal has been conducted to know the present population load of Anopheles subpictus. A preliminary attempt has been made to assess the potential morphological (wing) as well as molecular variation of Anopheles subpictus by using ITS-2 sequence primer. A considerable sequence variation is observed between the rural and urban population of West Bengal.
