DNA Barcoding Development and DNA Banking
Kew is one of the leaders in the field of DNA barcoding - work with us as we continue to develop this technology.
Kew has identified DNA codes that can be used to distinguish one plant from another, and to link the ID to the full plant information details. This technology has many potential uses, from landscape assessment to ensuring that plant materials coming through customs are authenticated. We are keen to work with other organisations to develop this technology further.
Kew can also assist your organisation in the setting up of plant DNA banks. Contact us to find out more.
