|Project Title||Assessing Opportunities for Biological Nitrogen Fixation in Rice- Transformation of Rice with Legume Nodulin Genes to Study the Genetic Predisposition of Rice for Forming Nodular Symbiosis with Rhizobia|
|Project Type||Contained Use (Greenhouse)|
|Name of Institution||International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Los Baños, Laguna|
|Cooperating Institution||Australian National University, Canberra, Australia;
CSIRO, Canberra, Australia
INRA/CNRS, Toulouse, France;
University of California Davis, USA;
University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA;
|Project Leader(s)||P. M. Reddy, Affiliate Scientist|
|Experimental Facility/Site||IRRI, Philippines|
|Purpose / Objectives||To assess the predisposition of rice towards forming symbiotic associations with nitrogen- fixing bacteria and nodulatioN.|
|Biosafety measures||1. The transgenic plants will be grown only in the CL4 greenhouse.
2. Every panicle of the flowering plants will be bagged to prevent cross- pollination or escape of pollen.
3. Plants used in the experiment will be destroyed by incineration after use.
4. Soil together with pots that are used to grow the plants will be placed in sealed disposal plastic bags and autoclaved.
5. The seeds will be kept in sealed aluminum foil packets inside a metal container, and stored in a locked refrigerator.
