The MON810 dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of genetically modified maize MON810 from Monsanto by using qPCR. The MON810 corn is a genetically modified maize used around the world. It is a Zea mays line known as YieldGard from the company Monsanto. This plant is a genetically modified organism (GMO) designed to combat crop loss due to insects. There is an inserted gene in the DNA of MON810 which allows the plant to make a protein that harms insects that try to eat it. The inserted gene is from the Bacillus thuringiensis, which produces the Bt toxin that is poisonous to insects.
