Comparative population genetic structure of two Ixodidae ticks (Ixodes ovatus and Haemaphysalis flava) in Niigata Prefecture, Japan
AbstractIxodid tick species function as important vectors of tick-borne diseases in Japan. In this study, we used genetic structure at two mitochondrial loci (cox1, 16S rRNA gene) to infer gene flow patterns of Ixodes ovatus and Haemaphysalis flava from Niigata Prefecture, Japan. We hypothesized that I. ovatus and H. flava have different population genetic structure because of their host mobility in different tick life stages despite sharing of hosts. Samples (n = 1 to 77) were collected in 29doi:10.1101/862904 fatcat:d2a6bejijzcnhoqmdz4w2n5sqm
