Article
Over the last few years, molecular species identification has revealed high levels of seafood mislabelling, which has generated public concern. The success of regulatory efforts depends on the accurate estimation of species substitution across multiple points in the supply chain. Flounders are among the most popular and highly valued seafood produc...

Dengue fever is a serious disease that threatens 40% of the world's population, and without a vaccine or therapy, accurate diagnosis is critical in trying to save patients. Our work establishes an alternative and more specific set of oligonucleotides for use in detecting the dengue viral genome via semi-quantitative nested PCR using a relatively in...
