The table below lists genetically modified corn and soybean events that are currently commercialized in the United States. Each event is characterized by random insertion of a genetic element into the plant genome. GMO varieties of each crop may contain one or more of these events through a process known as gene stacking. GMO testing involves identification of a defined portion of the relevant genetic element (transgene) inserted in order to confer a new trait on the plant.
|Crop||Relevant genetic element(s)||Characteristic||Event|
|Herbicide tolerance||Insect resistance||Drought
