Abstract

The Use of DNA and Protein-Based Detection Methods in Agricultural Biotechnology

Author(s): Elina Jones*

Detection methods based on DNA and proteins are commonly used instruments for monitoring biotechnology-derived crops and their products around the world. For product development, seed production, compliance, and contractual demands, agricultural biotechnology firms, food/feed providers and supply chains, diagnostic testing organizations, and regulatory authorities rely extensively on these two technologies. DNA and protein-based detection methods are primarily used to validate the presence or absence of Genetically Engineered (GE) materials, as well as to quantify the amount of GE material contained in a product. Several countries have passed legislation prohibiting the sale of Genetically Modified (GE) foods in national markets. Genetically Modified (GM) products are also known as Bioengineered (BE) or biotechnology-derived products.
