Project Information

Reference Number 19940033
Project Title Production of Early Flowering and Dwarf Transgenic Rice
Project Type Contained Use (Greenhouse)
Status N/A
Name of Institution International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Los Baños, Laguna
Cooperating Institution Institute of Biological Chemistry Pullman, Washington, USA Washington State University
Supervising IBC IRRI-IBC
Project Leader(s) Swapan K. Datta, Plant Biotechnologist
Experimental Facility/Site USA (Washington State University) Philippines (IRRI)
Purpose / Objectives To produce transgenic aromatic dwarf rice engineered with Rice MADS Box gene towards early flowering and reduced apical dominance.
Biosafety measures 1. The tested plants will be kept in isolation in the Phytotron or transgenic greenhouse to prevent escape of pollen and access by unauthorized personnel.
2. Panicles of flowering plants will be bagged as an additional precaution against escape of pollen.
3. Plant materials for disposal will be placed in sealed plastic bags and autoclaved prior to incineration.
4. Pots and soil will be autoclaved at high temperature and high pressure after use.
5. Transgenic seeds will be kept in hermetically sealed aluminum foil packages, inside a sealed metal container and stored in locked refrigerators designated for storage
of transgenic seeds in the Tissue
Culture Laboratory.
6. All plant tissues will be incinerated
and soil and water used in the
experiment will be autoclaved.
