DNA of Oral Cytobrush in Three Means Conservation

22:49 EDT 25th April 2015 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of this study is to analyze genomic DNA of buccal cytobrush stored in three means conservation.

Description

Blood samples are an excellent source of large amounts of genomic DNA. However, alternative sources are often needed in epidemiological studies because of difficulties in obtaining blood samples.
