DNA-barcoding of medicinal plants

Abstract
The identification of plant raw materials in pharmacy is of central importance in quality assurance since there are numerous species used as medicinal plants with numerous confusion or falsification possibilities of the raw materials. The identification is based so far on morphological and phytochemical analysis. The progress in molecular biology with steady increasing sequence information enables to set-up PCR-based methods of species identification ('DNA-barcoding') of medicinals plants, a new approach in this field especially in dubious identifications on the morphological and phytochemical level.
