What is it about?
The study develops a useful and feasible tool to detect meat adulteration and differentiate species present in mix meat for beef, pork, buffalo, quail, chicken, goat, and rabbit. The tool analyses mitochondrion DNA of different types of meat using polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP).

Why is it important?
A reliable meat differentiation and identification tool greatly benefit Food Forensic and Halal Authentication fields. PCR-RFLP proves to be an inexpensive yet accurate method to trace genetic differences in multiple meat species in large scales. The genetic differences serve as valuable genetic markers to identify the presence of beef and pork meat in food for Halal Authentication.
