Service and Technology Development
The AS-BCST greenhouse core facility is located in Tainan Science Park. The total greenhouse area is 2,500 m2; we have 8 isolated glasshouses, 10 semi-enclosed glasshouses, 8 isolated screen houses, and 14 growth chambers. Taiwan’s government certified our greenhouses as a GMO facility on June 18, 2010. The purpose of the greenhouse core facility is to provide a well-controlled environment to grow transgenic and wild-type plants. Our greenhouse is available on a user fee basis to all Academia Sinica units that need services such as seed propagation, and phenotype or yield evaluation.
