Summer Research Internship
Project 30 Molecular Characterization of GMOs

Prof. Dabing Zhang



Project Description and Objectives

As more and more transgenic crops such as transgenic maize and soybean have been approved and consumed as foods and feeds, more and more people have become concerned about the safety of transgenic organisms. Molecular characterization of transgenic organisms is the basis for safety assessments of transgenic organisms.


The objective of the project is to develop new detection methods to identify the changes that occur at the genomic, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolic levels. These changes are then compared between transgenic line and non-transgenic control line, and between transgenic line and conventional cultivated lines, laying a foundation for safety assessment.
