Some foods contain raw materials from genetically modified organisms (GMO). Examples include tofu, corn flakes and corn meal. In this experiment, your students will extract DNA from food or plant material and perform PCR to determine if any GM indicator genes are present. Amplified DNA is separated and sized by agarose gel electrophoresis. Kit includes: instructions, DNA extraction reagents, PCR beads, microtubes, primers, DNA ladder, ultrapure water, wax beads, gel loading dye, agarose, electrophoresis buffer, FlashBlue stain. All you need: micropipettes to measure between 5 and 50 �l, tips, waterbath, microcentrifuge, thermal cycler, electrophoresis apparatus and power supply.
