... samples from the National Park. They then ran a PCR with an rbcL primer pair to target the rubisco gene in plant chloroplasts. The PCR product was sequenced by a private company, Genewiz, and the DNA sequence was analyzed through DNA Subway. Twelve student groups, one or two students per group, isolated...
