Detection of authorized genetically modified maize events: participation in an inter-laboratorial study. Conference Paper uri icon


  • The soybean and maize are the most important genetically modified (GM) crops (57% and 25% of global biotechnological planted area, respectively). The need to monitor and verify the presence of biotechnology-derived material in food products demands analytical methods able to detect, to identify and to quantify either the introduced DNA or the expressed protein(s). The interest of USDA/GIPSA Profiency program is to perform accurate, reliable, and reproducible testing on biotechnology-derived events.
