Field of knowledge:Biological Sciences - Zoology - Taxonomy of Recent Groups
Convênio/Acordo: CNPq
Principal Investigator:Carlos José Einicker Lamas
Grantee:Carlos José Einicker Lamas

This study intends to make a valuable contribution to the knowledge of the diversity of neotropical chloropids, chironomids and micro bee flies, with an emphasis on the Brazilian fauna through the development of new tools to identify the diversity of unknown flies. One of the central scientific contributions of this project will be the substantial increase in the availability of genetic data on Chloropidae (Diptera) in public databases, including the DNA Barcode. This will allow faster and more efficient identification of chloropids using the genetic barcode. (AU)
