Experimental Facility/Site Genetic Transformation Laboratory (GTL), Cl4 Glasshouses and TG-02 screenhouse, IRRI, Los Banos 4030, Laguna
Purpose / Objectives

1. Development of transgenic lines of rice by Agrobacterium
mediated transformation.

2. Evaluation of transgenic lines in contained conditions for trait
expression and molecular/morphological/phenological

Biosafety measures

All experimental work to be carried out in DOST-BC approved
labs and glass houses at IRRI. Restricted access and movement
of transgenic materials. Storage of transgenic seeds in a
dedicated transgenic seed storage facility, and proper disposition
of excess transgenic plant materials.
