Physiology lab re-opens

IRRI's old "Rainbow Lab" has been refurbished into the more efficient and modern Physiology Laboratory, thanks to funding from the Australian government.

The Physiology Lab, built as a communal facility, was inaugurated on 19 April 2013 in a small ceremony led by David Johnson, head of the Crop and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD) that houses the lab.

The lab now features a compartment each for 'wet' (physiochemical and molecular work) and 'dry' (plant processing and phenotyping measurements) lab work.

Funding for the renovation was secured through the efforts of Bas Bouman, former CESD head and now GRiSP director. The renovation was overseen by Abdel Ismail, who issued guidelines for use of the lab during the inauguration.
