Abstract: Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has been successfully employed to detect transgenes in genetically modified (GM) soybean and maize. Three pairs of primers for <i style="">CaMV</i> 35S, <i style="">NOS</i> and <i style="">EPSPS</i> genes were used in the detection. The results reveal that PCR could differentiate the GM plants from non-GM plants. Evidently, PCR is a highly reproducible and sensitive technique that can be successfully employed in detecting transgenes for screening GM soybeans and GM maize from their conventional plants.
