Recently, a genetically modified microorganism (GMM) detection strategy using real-time PCR technology was developed to control fermentation products commercialized in the food and feed chain, allowing several unexpected GMM contaminations to be highlighted. Currently, only bacterial strains are targeted by this strategy. Given that fungal strains, like Trichoderma reesei, are also frequently used by the food industry to produce fermentation products, a novel real-time PCR method specific to this fungal species was developed and validated in this study to reinforce the GMM detection st…
