|Project Title||Evaluation of Transgenic Rice Plants with Virus- Derived Genes for Resistance to Tungro|
|Project Type||Contained Use (Greenhouse)|
|Name of Institution||International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Los Baños, Laguna|
|Cooperating Institution||The Scripps Research Institute (SRI)|
|Project Leader(s)||H. Koganezawa, Plant Pathologist, IRRI|
|Purpose / Objectives||To evaluate transgenic rice for resistance to rice tungro disease.|
|Biosafety measures||1. Plants will be kept in isolation in a Phytotron which will be sealed to prevent unauthorized entry of persons and especially the insect vector. Plants will be placed in mylar plastic tubes for inoculation. The plants will in turn be placed in a screen cage which will be placed in the individual growth chamber within the phytotron.
2. Panicles of flowering plant will be bagged to prevent release of pollen.
3. Plants and insects used in the experiments will be destroyed by incineration after experiments.
4. The seeds will be kept in sealed plastic bags, inside a sealed metal container separately from other seeds.
5. Soil and water used during and after the experiment be autoclaved.
