Students used PCR and gel electrophoresis to assess the presence of transgenes in plants and commercial food products. They amplified these transgenic regulatory sequences by PCR to test foods derived from genetically engineered crops as well as “GMO” and “non-GMO” DNA samples. We will also test for endogenous plant “housekeeping” genes to confirm that we have extracted viable DNA.
