The adoption and cultivation of transgenic crops is constantly increasing year by year globally including India despite several controversies and concerns. The regulatory authorities of different countries have set the mandatory/voluntary labelling requirements for these transgenic produce and made strict regulatory procedures for the approval to grow, import or utilize these transgenic crops as food or food ingredients. The different screening kits based on either transgenic DNA or proteins are being used which are much helpful in fulfilling these regulatory compliances on transgenic labeling. The present article focuses on different screening methods and significant current advances in such detection technologies.
