Authentication of botanical origin in herbal teas by plastid noncoding DNA length polymorphisms
(American Chemical Society, 2015-07-01)
The aim of this study was to develop a DNA barcode assay to authenticate the botanical origin of herbal teas. To reach this aim, we tested the efficiency of a PCR-capillary electrophoresis (PCR-CE) approach on commercial ...
Biotechnology for enhanced nutritional quality in plants
(Taylor & Francis, 2013-09)
With almost 870 million people estimated to suffer from chronic hunger worldwide, undernourishment represents a major problem that severely affects people in developing countries. In addition to undernourishment, micronutrient ...
Genomic simple sequence repeat markers reveal patterns of genetic relatedness and diversity in sesame
(Crop Science Society of America, 2015)
Sesame (Sesamum indicum L. syn. Sesamum orientale L.) is an orphan crop species with most molecular genetic research work done in the last decade. In this study, we used a pyrosequencing approach for the development of ...
A primer to molecular phylogenetic analysis in plants
(Taylor & Francis, 2015-07)
Reconstructing a tree of life by inferring evolutionary history is an important focus of evolutionary biology. Phylogenetic reconstructions also provide useful information for a range of scientific disciplines such as ...
High-throughput single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) identification and mapping in the sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) genome with genotyping by sequencing (GBS) analysis
Sesame (Sesamum indicum L. syn. Sesamum orientale L.) is considered to be the first oil seed crop known to man. Despite its versatile use as an oil seed and a leafy vegetable, sesame is a neglected crop and has not been a ...
Barcode DNA length polymorphisms vs fatty acid profiling for adulteration detection in olive oil
The aim of this study was to compare the performance of a DNA-barcode assay with fatty acid profile analysis to authenticate the botanical origin of olive oil. To achieve this aim, we performed a PCR-capillary electrophoresis ...
