Removal of fungal contaminants and their DNA from the surface of Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Psyllidae) prior to a molecular survey of endosymbionts
Florida Entomologist 91 (4), 702-705
Abstract: Bleach treatment reduced the quantity of intact DNA from external fungi sufficiently so that it was not amplifiable with a high-fidelity PCR protocol, while maintaining the integrity of insect genomic and eubacterial endosymbiont DNA for downstream PCR applications.
