Abstract

In this project we will sequence the genomes of some extinct and poorly know dragonflies from the insect collection at the Swedish Museum of Natural history. The aim of the project is dual as we both want to place these poorly known taxa in a phylogenetic context as well as to explore how well the insect collection at the Swedish Museum of Natural history works for High-throughput sequencing.
