|Project Title||Proposal to conduct experiments in Entomology testing of transgenic rice from growth room adjacent to Tissue Culture Laboratory, NCBL Annex to locked room in Greenhouse|
|Project Type||Contained Use (Greenhouse)|
|Name of Institution||International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Los Baños, Laguna|
|Project Leader(s)||F. A. Bernardo, Deputy Director General for International Services|
|Experimental Facility/Site||Philippines (IRRI)|
|Purpose / Objectives||Requirement for increased space|
|Biosafety measures||1. All plants and insects will be destroyed by autoclaving and incineration at the end of the experiment.
2. Full training, instruction and oversight of personnel on research and emergency measures.
|Conditions for Approval||N/A|
|Date of Approval||1995-03-27|
|Subject||Request of Dr. F.A. Bernardo to conduct experiments in Entomology testing of transgenic rice from growth room adjacent to Tissue Culture Laboratory, NCBL Annex to locked room in Greenhouse|
|Requesting Party||Dr. F.A. Bernardo, Deputy Director General for International Services/ IRRI, IRRI|
|Action of NCBP||Experiments on testing of transgenic rice for enhanced rice resistance to insects were previously notified to NCBP and approved in letters from Dr. W. Padolina dated 28 July 1993 (for soybean trypsin inhibitor gene and potato inhibitor 2 gene) and 29 Oct. 1993 (for synthetic Bt toxin cry1a(b) gene.Only the location of the experiment in entomology testing of plants will be changed.
Approved for implementation.
