We are trying to determine some information about the BSF in terms of its population genetics. If this is something you would like to help out with- check out the post below.
Until next time- best of luck and happy BSF farming!!!
Here is the post:
For a research project on the global population genetic characterisation of Black Soldier Fly, Hermetia illucens, using new genetic markers currently being developed, as well as mitochondrial sequencing, BSF samples of captive colonies and particularly wild populations (indigenous and invasive) from all over the world are very welcome.
Your support is very much appreciated and all sample provisions will be acknowledged in the forthcoming, fully transparent scientific publication.
