Recombinant DNA Registration Information

Research involving recombinant DNA is regulated through the National Institutes of Health in its Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules. All work involving recombinant DNA at the university must be approved by the University Biosafety Committee and the Biosafety Officer. Below is information on the procedures, the necessary forms, and the current Guidelines.

Anyone working on a recombinant DNA project that is covered by the NIH Guidelines must complete Recombinant DNA training prior to initiating work and every three years. The training is available online or through EHS. Please see the EHS training schedule for dates.
