Molecular tools for identification of Penicillium starter cultures used in the food industry.

Abstract

The main goal of this work was to develop rapid and accurate molecular tools to discriminate species of white industrial Penicillia. We applied three different polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based techniques. Sequences of the ITS region of the rRNA gene unit and of the 5' end of the beta tubulin gene yielded 1.2% and 5.8% nucleotide variability… (More)
