ABSTRACT
A Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method was set up to determine the ratio between pig (Sus scrofa) and goose (Anser anser) DNA quantities in a mixture. A "universal" primer and two specific primers for goose and pig were used. A highly significant statistical correlation (P - 0.01) between goose and pig DNA quantities and the electrophoretic band areas of PCR products was found.
