PCR Based Identification of Foodstuffs for Genetically Modified Organisms

This activity works in conjunction with AP Biology classes.

  • Students Test for Genetic Engineering
  • Time Required: 75 Minutes plus Two Hours for PCR
  • Activity in Conjunction with AP Biology
  • Application: Extracting DNA from Food or Plants
Some foods contain raw materials from genetically modified organisms (GMO). In this experiment, students extract DNA from food or plant material and perform PCR to determine if any GMO indicator genes are present.

Amplified DNA is separated and sized by agarose gel electrophoresis.

Ordering information: This item includes instructions, DNA extraction reagents, PCR EdvoBeads, microtubes, primers, a DNA ladder, ultrapure water, wax beads, gel loading dye, agarose, electrophoresis buffer, InstaStain Ethidium Bromide, and FlashBlue stain. Micropipettes to measure between 5 and 50 µl, tips, water bath, microcentrifuge, a thermal cycler, electrophoresis apparatus, a power supply, a microwave or hot plate, and a UV transilluminator are required but not included.

Delivery information: Some components require freezer storage on arrival. This item requires shipping in one to three days.
