Summary, abstract or table of contents
These guidelines cover areas of research involving: i) Genetically engineered organisms, ii) Genetic transformation of green plants, animals, iii) rDNA technology in vaccine development, and iv) Large scale production and deliberate/accidental release of organisms, plants, animals & products derived by rDNA technology. The guidelines prescribe 4 levels of risk, while carrying out experiments with microorganisms. Classification of organisms within these levels is based on pathogenicity, local prevalence of disease and epidemic causing strains in India.
