9th International Congress of Dipterology

I attended the 9th International Congress of Dipterology in Winhoek, Namibia. I preseneted there our new phylogenetic hypothesis of Miltogramminae (Diptera: Sarcophagidae) based on genomic data generated using anchored hybrid enrichment method (AHE). This work was carried out in collaboration with Brian Wiegmann (North Carolina State University), Brian Cassel (North Carolina State University), Krzysztof Szpila (Nicolaus Copernicus University) and Thomas Pape (University of Copenhagen). I was also a co-author of two talks presented by my PhD student Dominika Wyborska (“Application of delimitation methods to determine intraspecific molecular diversity in Miltogramminae (Sarcophagidae)”) and by dr Andrzej Grzywacz (“Third time lucky? – A comparison of phylogenetic hypotheses, based on multilocus Sanger sequencing and next-Generation sequencing, a case of the family Muscidae”). I also spent one week sampling flies in Namib Desert. The attendance was supported by National Science Center grant (UMO-2015/17/B/NZ8/02453).
