Will there be a difference in the levels of peroxidase between the different strains of GMO or non-GMO soybean seeds?

This study tested which type of soybean has the most peroxidase. The function of peroxidase found in soybeans is to initiate the growth process when the plant is growing or injured. The hypothesis was that there will be no difference in the levels of peroxidase between the different strains of soybeans regardless of whether they are genetically modified (GMO) or non-genetically modified (non-GMO). Four strains of soybean seed, two genetically modified and two non-genetically modified, were tested to determine if there were differing levels of peroxidase. The hypothesis was proven incorrect because the results of this study show that the non-genetically modified soybeans had more peroxidase than genetically modified soybeans.
