|Project Title||Use of Recombinant DNA Technology in the Virology Lab.|
|Project Type||Contained Use (Laboratory)|
|Name of Institution||International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Los Baños, Laguna|
|Cooperating Institution||John Innes Institute, Norwich, U.K. Scripps Research Institute, California, USA|
|Project Leader(s)||Ossmat Azzam, Tissue Culture Specialis|
|Experimental Facility/Site||IRRI, Philippines|
|Purpose / Objectives||1. To study the molecular factors that determine the concept of resistance to a rice virus,its durability and/ or breakdown.
2. To characterize the diversity of rice viruses using molecular tools.
3. To develop serological diagnostic kits that are based on antisera produced from in vitro expressed proteins.
|Biosafety measures||1. The virology lab will be locked at all times when unattended.
2. Restriction of any food or drinks inside the lab will be exercised.
3. All materials used in these
experiments will be autoclaved and
