I am currently interested in acquiring different strains / isolates of the
parasitic endosymbioants belonging to the wolbachia (pipentis) sp. If any of
you notice such contamination in your Drospholia (or indeed any other
arthropod) stocks then i would greatly appreciate it if you could send a
small aliqoute of your strain / species culture on to me. Costs etc
Many thanks and happy parasite free culturing!!
