Abstract

This studies objective is to analyze school foods for the Round-Up Ready gene. The study is conducted to prove that Round-Up Ready is in school foods and how reliant society is on Genetically Modified Organisms. The use of Gel Electrophoresis is used to find if the school foods have the Round-Up Ready gene. Results indicate that on the stained gel the Round-Up ready gene will be expressed. The Round-Up Ready Gene being expressed will indicate how society leans towards the use of Genetically Modified Organisms and how far this field has advanced.
