Designing Molecular Phylogenetic Analysis

Using Molecular Phylogenetics to Authenticate the Active Fungal Ingredient used in Herbal Supplements.
 
Oregon’s Wild Harvest research team, in partnership with a University of Santa Clara Biology student, designed a molecular phylogenetic analysis for species authentication of a commonly used fungal supplement using PCR methodologies. Our preliminary data suggests a successful and cost-effective method for DNA-based species authentication that could be used in the herbal supplement industry for other fungal and plant species that are difficult to identify.
