Quantification of Target Gene Expression

Focusing on the quality control and authentication of Chinese Medicine material, a popular for gene expression studies instrument-- Roche LightCycler 480 Real-Time PCR System (for 96- and 384-well plate formats) was installed in School of Chinese Medicine. It provides a rapid, reliable and quantitative result of real time PCR in Chinese Medicine material authentication based on the DNA sequence. A pair of unique and well-designed primers will be used to identify the species of animal or plant in a tiny amount of sample specifically and sensitively.

In addition, the system includes the detection of single nucleotide polymorphism and high resolution melting procedures for analysis of the genuine species of plants and animals. It is a valuable appraise of the producing area and source of genuine Chinese Medicine Materials.
