Under the title Using DNA metabarcoding to monitor the illegal trade in medicinal plants and protected orchids, and to detect adulterations in food, the University of Ioannina hosts a new Science to Practice day, organised by the Department of Biological Applications and Technology, and addressed to researchers, students, producers and consumers, general public.
The aim of the event is the information and discussion about the capabilities and benefits of the use of modern molecular techniques, such us DNA barcoding and metabarcoding, for the development of sustainable and robust solutions in extremely important current issues, like traceability, certification, quality control and confrontation of the illegal trade of protected or endangered plant species.
