- DNA can be copied in a test tube in the same way as when cells divide
- Signatures in DNA can be used to recognise the organism the DNA comes from
Countless methods have been devised for revealing DNA and in many contexts DNA analysis has now become routine. We have been part of this development at Nofima Mat. We have developed methods for revealing both bacteria and genetically modified material. Our method for revealing and quantifying many GMOs simultaneously has received particular international attention.
Our main focus now is the use of DNA tools for revealing and describing microbial communities and for being able to reveal allergens in food.
