|Project Title||Strain Improvement of Rhizobia for Tolerance to Environmental Stress|
|Project Type||Contained Use|
|Name of Institution||National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (BIOTECH),University of the Philippines Los Banos, College, Laguna,049-536-2721; 536-2724|
|Project Leader(s)||Erlinda Paterno, Professor|
|Experimental Facility/Site||BIOTECH-UPLB, Laguna|
|Purpose / Objectives||1. To provide insight into the molecular basis of stress resistance using recombinant DNA and associated techniques.
2. To improve tolerance of rhizobial strains to environmental stresses through genetic engineering techniques.
3. To evaluate symbiotic effectiveness of improved rhizobial strains.
|Biosafety measures||1. Containment capabilities
2. Sterilization procedures
3. Personnel awareness of biosafety procedures
4. Labeling/ designation of “risk” areas
5. Decontamination facilities
