In this lab we identified GMOs, through the method of PCR, in all of our food samples, in our organic samples, and in corn versus soy samples. We accepted are alternative hypothesis that there were GMOs in our food samples. We also accepted our alternative hypothesis that there were GMOs in our organic samples. We then compared GMOs in our corn versus soy samples, and rejected are null hypothesis that there were the same percentage of GMOs in corn and soy. The chi square test was performed for conventional corn and soy, and organic corn and soy. We calculated the p-value for all four samples and rejected our orginal hypothesis that there were 80% of GMOs in conventional corn, 60% of GMOs in conventional soy, and 15% of GMOs in organic corn and soy.
