Project Information

Reference Number 19970077
Project Title Screen house Evaluation of IR72 Containing Xa21 Gene for Bacterial Blight Resistance
Project Type Contained Use (Screenhouse)
Status N/A
Name of Institution Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice),Maligaya, Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija,(044) 456-0426/0415 ext. 259
Cooperating Institution University of California at Davis, California
Supervising IBC PhilRice-IBC
Project Leader(s) Rhodora Aldemita, Supervising Science Research Specialist
Experimental Facility/Site PhilRice, Nueva Ecija
Purpose / Objectives 1. To evaluate transgenic IR 72 containing the Xa- 21 gene for evaluation against local Oryza isolates.

2. To identify promising lines to be used for breeding purposes for eventual field release.

3. To develop rice varieties resistant to diseases.
Biosafety measures 1. Transgenic T3 and T4 generation transgenic IR72 containing the Xa21 gene will be maintained in the CL2 screenhouse.
2. The screenhouse will be locked at all times and only authorized persons will be allowed access.
3. Panicles of flowering plants will be bagged to prevent the escape of pollen.
4. All plant materials for disposal will be air dried prior to incineration.
5. Soil will be sterilized before and after use.
6. Transgenic seeds will be kept in Sealed aluminum foil packages, Stored, and secured in refrigerators/ Chambers or designated for storage of transgenic seeds in the cold storage room in the Plant Breeding and Biotechnology Division of PHILRICE.
Conditions for Approval Project should not start until after the committee has inspected and certified that the facility is indeed adequate for the type of the proposed activity.
