Biosafety Laboratory

    The lab has the most comprehensive confinement facilities and fields for genetic characterizations and biosafety evaluations of genetically modified (GM) crops. Endowed with these advanced setups, the lab is facilitating: 1) the implementation of statutory isolation field trials; 2) the approval process of GM crops by way of the evaluation of target traits and commercialization potential; 3) the establishment of GM crop field trial regulations and capacity; and 4) the provision of all-inclusive biosafety database for the Council of Agriculture as a reference in policy decision-making process for GM crops.
