DNA DepotT Genetically Modified Plants
This hands-on experiment kit provides an introduction to the use of genetic modification in agricultural biotechnology. Students can predict and compare growth differences of both naturally selected and genetically modified soybean and corn plants. Such observation provides an excellent starting point for discussing the safety of genetically modified products and consumers’ rights to know the composition of foods. Included are wild type and genetically modified soybean seeds and corn seeds as well as labeling sticks.
