In this study, we validated the most useful DNA barcoding
markers for duckweed previously reported and designed new markers for ecotype identification .
also performed poorly with respect to the dried raw materials, with only just over half correctly identified by at least 1 of the 4 barcodes used.
This concept, termed DNA barcoding
, is based on the premise that the sequence diversity of a single mitochondrial gene, cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (COD, is suitable for identifying most animal species (Hebert et al., 2003a, 2003b).
Morphology independent methods such as DNA barcoding
are suitable for the identification of commercialized medicinal plants and raw materials for industrial manufacture.
Keeping all these advantages of Barcoding in view, it was decided to carry out DNA barcoding
of Bipolaris species.
Schneiderman's decision came about after DNA barcoding
testing of the products, including Echinacea, ginseng and St.
of parasites and invertebrate disease vectors: what you don't know can hurt you.
Mister added that DNA barcoding
remains a "flawed method for across-the-board testing" for analyzing the quality of botanical ingredients and finished products.
The office used DNA barcoding
, a form of genetic testing, on the supplements in question, and found that some products contained houseplants, peanuts, beans, rice and other ingredients instead of the ingredients claimed on the labels.
The investigation used DNA barcoding
technology to examine the contents of the herbal supplements sold at the four major retailers in 13 regions across the state, including Binghamton, Brooklyn, Buffalo, Harlem, Nassau County, Plattsburgh, Poughkeepsie, Rochester, Suffolk County, Syracuse, Utica, Watertown and Westchester County.
