While students are enjoying their labs and experiments, we take into account the safety issues of the highest priority. HKUST has a Biosafety Committee monitoring all research activities taking place on campus. The committee oversee safety issues related to specific experimental procedures and the ethical practices involving the handling of animals.

At this stage of the plasmid construction, only molecular/cellular activity of the constructed plasmids will be tested within the laboratory. They are related to chemical sensing, signal transduction observation in the yeast system. No environmental release or distribution of the reagents generated will occur. All procedures conducted in this project is performed according to the guideline stipulated in the NIH recombinant DNA regulations. The procedures thus do not impose any biosafety concern for participants of this project or the public.
