Using polymerase chain reaction, we investigated the extent to which digestion affects the potential to amplify 12S mitochondrial DNA sequences from bloodmeals of individual human body lice (Pediculus humanus L.) (Phthiraptera, Pediculidae) up to 72... Read More about DNA detection rates of host mtDNA in bloodmeals of human body lice (Pediculus humanus L., 1758).
