Hi all,

I am preparing some research for detecting Genetically modified food, and found that people usually use the word
"event-specific detection" for describing the RT-PCR detection of the 35S promoter and NOS terminator.

Why this name is used...? what exactly the meaning of "event-specific" mean ?

Thx and Cheers

event-specific detection is a PCR method to detect a transgene from one particular GMO. If the sample contains many GMOs, only the presence of that specific GMO will be answered by this method.


This european commission document is for your reference (although a difficult read in my opinion) Posted Image See page 50
