SAFOTEST Sintesi della relazione

Project ID: QLK1-CT-1999-00651
Finanziato nell'ambito di: FP5-LIFE QUALITY
Paese: United Kingdom

Large quantities of rice seeds from transgenic lines bulked up

The objective was to produce adequate quantities of seed from the transgenic rice lines for the other partners involved in SAFOTEST.

After establishment of the lines expressing the proteins of interest, seed from the primary transformants were multiplied in environmentally controlled rooms at 30C with a 16 hour photoperiod; seeds were subsequently sent to Zhejiang University, China for bulking up in the field.

Between 200-250 kg of each rice line was harvested and despatched to be used by the other SAFOTEST partners.
