PCR-based GM Diagnostics: Strategies for Detection of Genetically Modified Events
Authors: Sushmita, Dr. Monika Singh (Co-author)
Genetically modified (GM) crops are being commercially cultivated worldwide, possessing major agriculturally important traits like abiotic and biotic stress resistance, better yield and enhanced nutritional profile etc. in order to ensure global food security. With increase in commercialization of such crops, presence of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in crops and products can be regulated in a systematic manner by employing GM diagnostics.
What are GMOs?
GMOs or genetically modified organisms are any biological entities whose genetic material has been altered for the trait of interest through the use of genetic engineering.
Constituents of a Gene construct:
GM Detection Strategies employed for Routine Testing:
Two methods are broadly employed for GM detection:
DNA-based methods are relatively more stable, robust and sensitive than protein-based assays and have the following variants:
PCR-based GM Detection Methods
PCR-based GM Detection methods involve amplification of specific region of the integrated transgenic construct and based on the specificity required, can be categorised as under:
