    A global tobacco identity preservation program - TIPP

    RYAN L.; GADANI F.; ZUBER J.; ROSSI L.; ARCHIBALD C.; FISHER C.
    Philip Morris International Operations, Lausanne, Switzerland
    The tobacco industry maintains the identity of tobacco types (sun, air or flue-cured) and grades in order to blend these components into the products preferred by our consumers. With TIPP this existing system was further developed to ensure additional ...

    Potential of molecular marker analysis for assessment of genetic diversity in tobacco varieties

    ROSSI L.; BINDLER G.; PIJNENBURG H.; GADANI F.
    Philip Morris Europe, R&D, Neuchatel, Switzerland.
    The objective of the study was to investigate the genetic diversity of tobacco varieties by developing polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based procedures that can detect DNA polymorphisms in tobacco. An effective DNA extraction method is required in order ...
