Abstract

The chewing lice to be analyzed and sequenced are Ischnocera (Goniodidae, Heptapsogasteridae and Philopteridae) parasites of non-passerine birds that are deposited in the collection of ectoparasites in the Zoology Museum of USP. The method to be followed for the extraction of DNA from chewing lice that is already used for this group of insect and will be tested three genetic fragments (two mitochondrial and nuclear).
