Traceability of dna fragments through the food chain by dna-pna techniques: application to novel foods

Objective

The project concerns Danes detection in raw materials and foods. Tractability of Interacts through the food chain will be studied. The project involves well-established methods based on PCR, advanced PCR methods real time PCR (RT-PCR) that allow precise quantitation, and new method development based on DNAmicroarrays. A new PNA-technology, actually aimed at biomedical diagnostics will be established as complementary to PCR, aimed at improving sensitivity, selectivity and increased detection limits in food. Validation of different methods will be performed, in order to provide updated criteria of choice in food control through the food chain. Application to genetically modified organisms (Gomes) will be performed. Food industries, retailer's groups, consumers’ associations and universities are involved.
