"GMO Detective: DNA Detection for all"

by Guy Aidelberg & Naiane Ribeiro Rios


Description: The GMO detection kit is a low cost and open source tool for DNA detection. This kit can be used both for scientific and educational purposes. The idea is to detect a gene of interest simply rapidly and affordably. Starting with a given initial sample of your choice, such as corn or soy derived products, DNA is extracted in 5 minutes, this is added to a mastermix for an hour at 65 degrees, then genes are detected through fluorescence emission by eye/camera. Users will be encouraged to upload, share and discuss their results with others across the world.
