A procedure for the validation of a screening method suitable for the detection of most of the transgenic plants in food is described. This method is based on the detection of two regulator sequences, the 35S promotor and the NOS terminator, by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The design outlined here provides great flexibility in the individual techniques used for deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) extraction, purification and amplification.
