A new peer-reviewed, open source study co-authored by Health Research Institute shows how to test for the genetically modified crops produced through gene-editing.
According to HRI Labs CEO and Chief Scientist, Dr. John Fagan, “The method we have developed detects what is probably the most challenging class of gene edits – a modification of just a single letter in the genetic blueprint. Since the scientific community has been using similar approaches for two decades to detect more complex GMOs, it is likely that this approach can be used to develop detection methods for most, if not all, gene-edited crops.
In earlier GMO generations, crops were modified through transgenic engineering which is the placement of DNA from one species into another, typically involving multiple genes.
Test your exposure to glyphosate, the most widely used weed killing chemical on farms, lawns, schoolyards and golf courses. Join others in this exciting crowd-sourced research project to learn about ourselves, our food system, and our environment.
Join a growing group of people who care about animals in a citizen-science effort. We aim to find answers to why animal exposure to glyphosate is measuring much higher than human exposure.ngs.
