Dr Daniel Masiga, head of the Molecular Biology Unit at International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology, said: "It's very dicult for wildlife authorities to determine whether a piece of meat has come from livestock or from wildlife, hence DNA barcording allows an insti NA barcording allows an insti N -tution like the Kenya Wildlife Service to very quickly determine whether one is dealing with bushmeat or legal processed wildlife.
