    Abstract ( 176 )   PDF (12559KB) ( 117 )  
    Point-of-care test (POCT) is a necessary technology to implement the supervision of genetically
    modified (GM) crops in resource-limited settings, which plays an important role in GM organisms monitoring. Re⁃
    cently, biosensor provides a promising pathway for a simple, quick and affordable quantification of GM ingredients.
    So far plenty of studies have concentrated on the methodology development of biosensor,however its application
    has rarely been reported. The development of portable biosensors with desirable characteristics of integration and
    miniaturization is highly demand for POCT. This paper reviews recent advances in handheld device-assisted minia⁃
    turized biosensor systems for POCT of GM crops. Miniaturization strategies of biosensors for POCT of GM organisms
    in the future are then proposed. The trends, prospects and challenges of miniaturized biosensors for POCT are fur⁃
    ther described.

    2021, 43 (1):  31.  doi: 10.19802/j.issn.1007-9084.2020318
    Abstract ( 238 )   PDF (492KB) ( 259 )  
    Molecular characterization lays a foundation for safety assessment and subsequent monitoring of
    transgenic plants. Due to the target-specific nature, conventional polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based methods
    cannot comprehensively detect unintended gene insertions, let alone detect unknown GM events. More and more
    newly developed crops by new plant breeding technology challenged classical PCR-based methods. Next-genera⁃
    tion sequencing is expected overcome these limitations, providing rapid and comprehensive molecular feature data.
    This article summarized complex mechanism of T-DNA integration, limitations of traditional molecular identifica⁃
    tion methods, and application of high-throughput sequencing methods in safety evaluation of genetically modified
    molecular characteristics. It also discussed challenges encountered and application strategies, which might provide
    alternatives for safety evaluation of genetic modification.

    Abstract ( 210 )   PDF (524KB) ( 321 )  
     Labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is an important part of safety management of
    GMOs. Quantitative detection technology provides important technical support for effective implementation of the
    GM labeling system. Digital PCR does not rely on standard curves and reference materials when performing quanti⁃
    tative detection of nucleic acid molecules, it could directly calculate copy number concentration of the detection tar⁃
    get in sample. Its application in accurate quantification of nucleic acids is becoming more and more extensive. In
    the quantitative detection of GMOs, digital PCR could be used directly to calculate content of exogenous gene in
    template. By comparing of digital PCR and real-time fluorescent quantitative PCR in GMOs detection, factors affect⁃
    ing digital PCR detection results were elaborated, and the possibility of digital PCR results traceable to SI units was
    discussed. This study was expected to provide a reference for application of digital PCR in quantitative detection of
    GMOs and precise quantification of nucleic acids in several fields.

    Abstract ( 311 )   PDF (396KB) ( 478 )  
    To break the main obstacle that the cell wall preventing delivery of exogenous biomolecules into in⁃
    tact cell during plant genetic transformation, nanomaterial-mediated gene delivery technology was currently suc⁃
    cessfully applied. Traditional transgenic methods require the aid of external force or the mediation by creatures like
    agrobacterium. The nano-carriers for genetic delivery possess outstanding advantages such as excellent biocompati⁃
    bility, ability to protect external DNA/RNA against nuclease degradation, high transfection efficiency, thus provide
    a new promising way for plant genetic engineering. In this paper, we summarized the bottlenecks of plant genetic
    transformation met currently, the drawbacks of the existing methods and the advantages of nanomaterial-mediated
    delivery. And the key techniques and research progresses of nanoparticles-mediated plant transformation were dis⁃
    cussed in detail. Ultimately, the advantages and disadvantages as well as future direction and problems of this newly
    formed technology were also discussed and prospected.

    Abstract ( 164 )   PDF (5527KB) ( 257 )  
     To explore an on-site extraction method for plant genomic DNA during detection of genetically mod⁃
    ified(GMO)soybeans, a rapid extraction of plant DNA was developed by applying silicon membrane to absorb
    DNA, together with filter membrane and syringe. The method was used to extract DNA from leaves and seeds of 5
    major crops, including soybean, cotton, rapeseed, corn, and rice. The conventional PCR and basic RPA(recombi⁃
    nase polymerase amplification)are simultaneously used to amplify endogenous genes from the DNA extracted by
    the rapid extraction and QIAGEN kit methods. Results showed that the rapid extraction method had higher DNA
    yield than the QIAGEN method, while both of the extraction met the needs of conventional PCR and basic RPA am⁃
    plification. By detecting the genetically modified soybean SHZD32-1, the DNA rapid extraction method combined
    with conventional PCR, fluorescence RPA and fluorescence quantitative PCR showed consistent and accurately re⁃
    sults. For this developed rapid DNA extraction method does not require centrifuge and other equipment, and could
    be completed in 3 minutes on site, it was considered to be successfully meeting the requirements on site.

    Abstract ( 191 )   PDF (27014KB) ( 129 )  
    Genome editing technology has been successfully used in agricultural breeding, it is urgent to estab⁃
    lish accurate identification and quantification technology based on molecular characteristics of genome-edited prod⁃
    ucts. In this study, SP1 gene-edited rice was used as materials to develop an editing site-specific PCR method by
    designing universal primer pair upstream and downstream of the editing sites, and gene editing site-specific Taq⁃
    Man probes targeting at the editing sites. The results demonstrated that this method accurately identified specific ge⁃
    nome-edited products with a detection sensitivity of 5-10 copies. The quantitative detection of genome-edited prod⁃
    ucts was performed by both real-time PCR (qPCR) and droplet digital PCR (ddPCR). Since thousands of indepen⁃
    dent droplets of ddPCR might eliminate the competitive consumption of universal primers by wild-type DNA, the
    quantitative results of ddPCR showed higher quantitative accuracy than those of qPCR.

    2021, 43 (1):  90.  doi: 10.19802/j.issn.1007-9084.2020322
    Abstract ( 176 )   PDF (13597KB) ( 324 )  
    Digital PCR (dPCR), an absolute quantitative method of DNA molecules, has been successfully ap⁃
    plied for genetically modified organisms (GMO) detection and reference material characterization. In this paper, a
    duplex ddPCR method was established for quantification of MON87427 content with reference plasmid pUC57-M
    harboring MON87427-specfic sequence and 5 maize reference gene sequences as quality control. By comparing the
    5 reference genes, zSSIIb was determined to combine with MON87427 for duplex ddPCR assay according to the res⁃
    olution of positive droplets and negative droplets, the number of raindrops with medium signal intensity, and the con⁃
    sistency between measured value and theoretical value. The optimal annealing temperature for MON87427/zSSIIb
    duplex ddPCR was determined at 58.4℃, and the duplex ddPCR displayed good linearity over the range from 10 to
    60 000 copies. The quantitative results of blinded samples by duplex ddPCR were well comparable with those by re⁃
    al-time quantitative PCR (qPCR), indicating that the MON87427/zSSIIb duplex ddPCR might replace the qPCR
    method for quantification of transgenic maize MON87427 and characterization of MON87427 reference materials.

    signed and used for accurate and precise real-time PCR (qPCR) method in house validated. Results supported the
    specific of the method on detecting g10evo-epsps gene from transgenic soybean ZUTS-33. Standard curves construc⁃
    tion showed that the PCR amplification efficiency was over 90% with R2 above 0.99. Limit of detection was assessed
    to be 8 copies and limit of quantification was estimated at 16 copies. The accuracy of qPCR method was verified by
    screening 5 mixed DNA samples with known levels of the ZUTS-33 event (4.5, 2, 0.5, 0.09 and 0.045%, respective⁃
    ly). The average bias between the quantified values and expected values of the 5 samples deviated from 0.00% to
    11.11 %, and relative repeatability standard deviation ranged from 2.30% to 17.10%. The overall data indicated
    that this developed g10evo-epsps-specific qPCR method could meet the requirements of GM soybean screening and
    provide technical support for GM soybean regulation and labeling.

    Abstract ( 172 )   PDF (9915KB) ( 124 )  
     Evaluating possible negative effects of alien genes expressed in transgenic plants is essential in en⁃
    vironmental safety assessment of genetically modified(GM)organisms. We compared bacterial communities in rhi⁃
    zosphere soil of Brassica napus overexpressing mEPSPS (JHX6) and the control line J9707. Results showed that Pro⁃
    teobacteria, Bacteroidetes, Acidobacteria and Actinobacteria were the dominant bacterias in the rhizosphere soil of B.
    napus. Neither alpha diversity analysis (e.g. Shannon and Simpson index), PCoA nor MRPP analysis had revealed
    significant differences between the same developmental stage of the GM rape and control line. Meanwhile, Plancto⁃
    mycetes was less enriched in rhizosphere soil of GM rape at flowering stage compared with that of wild type. The en⁃
    richments of few bacterial genera were significantly different at 3 developmental stages of the GM rape and wild
    type. The bacterial diversity and community structure were great difference among the 3 developmental stages, espe⁃
    cially in comparison of seedling stage. In total, mEPSPS overexpression in B. napus plants caused no significant
    variation on bacterial community in rhizosphere soil. While long-term dynamic monitoring is still necessary.

    2021, 43 (1):  161.  doi: 10.19802/j.issn.1007-9084.2020337
    Abstract ( 186 )   PDF (14746KB) ( 195 )  
    As a new gene-editing technology, CRISPR/Cas system has been widely used in the genome engi⁃
    neering of various organisms. Soybean genetic transformation technology is time-consuming and complicated. The
    CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing system has a certain possibility of off-target. To ensure the feasibility of selected target,
    the soybean gene GmCO was selected in this study as a target, using the CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing system to con⁃
    struct a target gene knockout vector. And then plant tissue culture was used to promote soybean explants to grow ad⁃
    ventitious roots by cotyledon explant infection mediated by Agrobacterium rhizogenes K599 strain. The detection of
    adventitious roots showed that there was a four-base deletion at target 2, indicating that the gene-editing of soybean
    adventitious roots was successfully realized. Due to its simple operation and short cycle, this method realizes the fea⁃
    sibility of rapid identification of the selected target in soybean and provides a potential way to study soybean gene
    GmCO function and genetic improvement.
