Guy Aidelberg from CRI Paris will join our P1 lab and show the participants how to DNA test if there are GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) in their food.

Bring your food for the test, we bring the pipets and the safety rules.

While pipetting, we will discuss together about food, DNA, foodtech, GMOs, and participatory science.
