|Project Title||Development of transgenic Rice Tolerant to Drought Using IPT Gene Under Control of Delayed Senescence Promoter|
|Project Type||Contained Use (Greenhouse)|
|Name of Institution||International Rice Research Institute|
|Cooperating Institution||Department of Plant Sciences, University of California at Davis (UCD) One Shields Ave.|
|Supervising IBC||International Rice Research Institute (IRRI)|
Dr. Inez Hortense Slamet-Loedin
|Experimental Facility/Site||Experiments will be carried out in the Biotechnology Laboratory, PBGB Division, IRRI. Transgenic rice plants of IR64 will be grown in approved transgenic greenhouse CL4. • Phenotypic evaluation of Kitaake and IR64 transgenic events will be carried out|
|Purpose / Objectives||
The objective of this research is to test the efficacy of stress-induced cytokinin synthesis gene (IPT under control of delayed senescence promoter SARK) in conferring drought tolerance in indica varietal background (events transformed at IRRI, cv IR64) and in japonica background (events transformed at UC-Davis (cv. Kitaake)).
• All vectors will be in the plasmid collection of the Rice Biotechnology Laboratory, IRRI and/or Molecular Physiology, Cambridge.
