Authentic drugs tagged with plant DNA could help snare fake meds (Scientific American)

Drugs have a delicate chemical balance, and are ingested into or applied to the body. Adding even a little extra genetic code could change a compound’s stability, how it is released into the body or the efficacy of its active ingredient, says Vincent Remcho, a chemistry professor at Oregon State University. Hayward says that such a tiny amount of DNA would not throw off this balance, but researchers and regulators would need to see safety studies to confirm this.

Specifically, the team studied how the earthquake had shifted the ground and for instances of liquefaction, in which “the soil starts behaving like a liquid,” Mason says. (see also NSF)

Shaun Townsend, an OSU faculty member who heads the breeding aspect of the partnership with the Indie Hops, would then use the information to develop cultivars with particular oil profiles.
