Molecular biology section

This section offers various services with software and hardware facilities. In this section, the diversity of animal meat in a variety of food products is identified using PCR. Also, the identification of bacteria in food products is another capability of this section to track the types of bacteria or to determine and identify them. In this section, different types of tuna and non-tuna fish are identified using specific primers as well as various PCR methods.


 Setting up GMO detection using standard primers as well as new primers is another activity of this department.

Educational services :
1. Primer design
2. Training in PCR methods
