BIOTECHNOLOGY RESEARCH CENTER OF SHANGHAI ACADEMY OF AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES
The Biotechnology Research Center of Shanghai Academy of Agriculture Science(BRCSAAS) is one of the Shanghai Agriculture Genetic and Breeding Key Labs and is charge for its daily routine. Currently, there are 44 staffs.22 of them have doctorate or masterate and 11 experts with high-ranking title.
The constitutions including the Institute of Plant Cell Engineering, the Institute of Plant Gene Engineering, the Institute of Testing and Safety Assessment of Transgenic Plants, Shanghai YongYe Agro-Bioengineering Co., Ltd and Yannong Biotech Co., Ltd.
The Biotechnology Research Center is not only an agricultural research institution with multiple disciplines, but also an academic center for agricultural research in Shanghai. The Research Center undertakes as its major tasks the applied research as well as applied basic research on agriculture and reinforces the developmental research to solve the key scientific problems with overall importance in Shanghai urban agricultural economy and to provide research achievements and services for the realization of modern agriculture in Shanghai. The Center lays its emphasis on establish a technology platform, which we have own intellectual property, for isolation and cloning of functional gene, elements construction and trnasgenetic plant high-effective expression. By combining modern biotechnology with traditional breeding, we have been remarkably successful in helping to raise yields, improve quality and improve resistance to pests and diseases not only in new crop gerplasms and cultivars but also new productions of Chinese medicine. The Center developed new way to produce the feedstuff additive and enzyme preparation, with the help of plant bioreactor. The Center takes the responsibility of organizing the molecular biology research on development strategies for the testing and safety assessment of transgenetic crops and their productions.
Until now the BRCSAAS has undertaken lots of programs at national,ministrial and provincial levels. DH barley new cultivars have been breeded. New feedstuff additive and enzyme preparation have been produced. Developed the fast, precise and low-cost reagent box. We have got more than 60 science achievements including six Shanghai Science and Technology Progress Award (three first class, one second and one third). 4 invention patents have been issued;3 new varieties have been considered for certification;3 achievements have got the High and New Technology Transformed Certification. More than 200 original research articles have published, including SCI more than 30.20 doctor or master have got good training at the Center.
