Project Information

Reference Number 19950051
Project Title Production of Transgenic Rice Using Agrobacterium Mediated Transforming Systems
Project Type Contained Use (Laboratory)
Status N/A
Name of Institution International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Los Baños, Laguna
Cooperating Institution N/A
Supervising IBC IRRI-IBC
Project Leader(s) Swapan K. Datta, Plant Biotechnologist
Experimental Facility/Site IRRI, Philippines
Purpose / Objectives To produce transgenic rice engineered using Agrobacterium transformation methods.
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/ chambers designated for storage of transgenic seeds in the Tissue Culture Laboratory of IRRI.
