ARS and the Centro de Ecologia y Biodiversidad will collect samples of Peruvian flies and jointly train students to make additional collections. ARS will extract, sequence, and analyze DNA from these samples for use in ongoing systematic studies of fruit flies and other flies, including analyses of phylogenetic relationships and diagnosis of species. Results and data will be shared with CEBIO and made available to the scientific community.
