DNA Barcode and Genetic Stock Verification

Crop DNA Genetic Variety Hybrid Verification IdentificationGenetic stock verification is a way to identify your genetic stock from others. If you are a plant breeder and you have a variety that is genetically superior, you can always trace that plant by knowing a specific unique sequence that is found only in that variety or by introducing a sequence (barcode) into that plant. Whatever the goal is, it is possible to identify a specific animal or plant that you may be interested in identifying in the field. This could be by taking a leaf punch or a seed from plants or in the case of animals, even by purchasing semen from a suspected animal to see if genetic theft has occurred.
