Schinus terebinthifolius Raddi is a perennial native from Atlantic forest. It is of high ecological plasticity and is used in traditional medicine. Based on promising reports concerning its bioactivity, it was included as a species of great interest for distribution through the National Health System. A number of agronomic studies to guide its crop production are therefore underway. This study examined diversity and phylogenetic relationships among native S.

Molecular DNA identification of medicinal plants used by traditional healers in Malaysia

N. A. A. Aziz, Ahmad, M. I., and Naim, D. M., Molecular DNA identification of medicinal plants used by traditional healers in Malaysia, vol. 14, pp. 15937-15947, 2015.

Plants have been used throughout human history for food and medicine. However, many plants are toxic, and cannot easily be morphologically distinguished from non-toxic plants. DNA identification solves this problem and is widely used. Nonetheless, plant DNA barcode identification faces a number of challenges, and many studies have been conducted to find suitable barcodes.
