Real Time PCR is a technique widely used for GMO quantification. The maize seed contains diploid embryo
and triploid endosperm. This implies that the ratio transgene/endogene determined by Real Time PCR will
vary due to the presence of different genome copies in the seed compartments. The transgene/endogene ratio
is determined for single seeds from commercial transgenic line T25. This ratio is compared between the seeds
that originate from reciprocal crosses between T25 and the conventional variety B73. The variation in the GMO
content due to the presence of seeds with different origin in the seed samples of 3000 seeds is evaluated.
