Transgenic raw materials in food production - Detection of transgene and heterologous protein levels (NT TR 542)

NT TR 542

  • The aim of the project was to find out through a model case whether the threshold of 1 % GM material in foods is detectable with the present analytical methods. The transgenic barley material was homozygotized through microspore culture for production of doubled haploid (DH) plants. The transgenic and non-transgenic barley samples were malted, mashed and fermented.
