Abstract

Fifty percents of soybean in Indonesia has been imported from the United States. Most of 94 % imported soybean was genetically engineered soybean. In meanwhile, products of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) of Indonesia were not labeled yet in the market packaging products. This aim of the study study was to detect EPSPS-CP4 gene which potentially indicates of transgenic gen of soybean in order to help Indonesia to implement government regulation on label and food advertisement and fulfill consumer right. The result indicated that the local soybean also contained Genetically Engineered (GE) herbicide-tolerant gene called EPSPS-CP4 gene of transgenic soybean by using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method. Those Local soybeans brand name sold in the market were Lokal, Galunggung, and Wonosari.
