Technical Abstract: A microsatellite library was prepared from size-selected genomic DNA of the Hessian fly (Mayetiola destructor). Over 52,000 microsatellite containing clones were recovered and several candidate loci were subsequently characterized and used to determine amounts of gene flow within and between biotypes and to determine what if any differentiation could be seen. The implications of this research will affect the treatment of extant populations as well as the infestations into new areas.
