Protecting the Food Supply with PCR

(runtime: 2:18 min)

Corn crops are vulnerable to a serious bacterial disease known as Stewart's Wilt, which can sharply reduce crop yields. Accurate identification of this pathogen in infected corn plants is critical to minimizing its impact. A team of scientists discovered that Titanium Taq DNA Polymerase was able to generate reproducible PCR banding patterns to distinguish this pathogen from several related strains—providing a rapid, reliable genotyping method to help protect corn crops from a devastating blight. That's Good Science!
