Followed by the transformation process, laboratory tests on stability and safety are repeated for several generations of the genetically modified plant.
There two main kind of laboratory tests: laboratory tests and field tests.
Laboratory tests are used to check whether appropriate DNA is transferred. This ensures that the plant will grow properly.
The above pictures shows the test for the seedling of the beans. The modified seeds are tested by putting it on the agar in a Perish dish. The Perish dishes are then put into the refrigerator to keep it in condition.
Field tests are done to check the DNA in the plant lead to a proper and health growth of the plant. It is done to prevent mutation of genes over generations. After regeneration, a careful selection of the product will be done to ensure the quality.
Hence, the risk of generating poison will be greatly reduced.
Laboratory tests are done by both the producer and the government. This should be done serious for the sake of a high quality product.
