Ginseng drugs, derived from underground parts of Panax species (Araliaceae), are the most important group of herbal medicines in the Orient. Previously, the nucleotide sequences of the nuclear 18S rRNA gene of 13 Panax taxa were determined, as were the specific polymorphic nucleotides for identification of each species. On the basis of the nucleotide… CONTINUE READING
