Amplified mitochondrial DNA as a diagnostic marker for species of conifer-feeding Choristoneura (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)Download
Abstract: We describe a method for identifying conifer-feeding species and lineages of Choristoneura Lederer in Canada and Alaska. The method relies on amplification of mitochondrial (mt) DNA by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR); amplified DNA is then digested with restriction enzymes to give...
A large number of branded chicken products exist in Japan, and in some cases, the breed of chicken is an important factor used to attract consumer interest in the retail product. In order to establish a simple method for verifying such breed claims we applied the amplified fragment length...
We demonstrate the feasibility of USB-powered portable genetic amplification. One of the central processes within medical or biological genetic methods is polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Through this amplification, more quantities of the specified genetic target can be obtained for analysis and...
This thesis addresses the need for inexpensive microfluidic platforms by contributing to the collaborative development of a modularised, integrated system capable of molecular diagnostics using bead-based sample preparation, polymerase chain reaction and capillary electrophoresis analysis...
Variation in Fetal Outcome, Viral Load and ORF5 Sequence Mutations in a Large Scale Study of Phenotypic Responses to Late Gestation Exposure to Type 2 Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome VirusDownload
In spite of extensive research, the mechanisms of reproductive disease associated with Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome virus (PRRSv) are still poorly understood. The objectives of this large scale study were to evaluate associations between viral load and fetal preservation,...
Microbial community structure and operational performance of a fluidized bed biofilm reactor treating oil sands process-affected water
Impact of ozonation pre-treatment of oil sands process-affected water on the operational performance of a GAC-fluidized bed biofilm reactor
The infrastructure necessary to support diagnostic and pathogen-detection processes does not exist in some regions of the world that need it most. Access to fast, inexpensive and portable diagnostic infrastructure could be a solution to this problem. Next generation lab-on-chip (LOC) systems that...
