Data from: A HRM real-time PCR assay for rapid and specific identification of the emerging pest spotted-wing drosophila (Drosophila suzukii)

Manpreet K. Dhami & Lalith Kumarasinghe
Spotted wing drosophila (Drosophila suzukii) is an emerging pest that began spreading in 2008 and its distribution now includes 13 countries across two continents. Countries where it is established have reported significant economic losses of fresh produce, such as cherries due to this species of fly.
