The Institutional Biosafety Committee, or IBC, is the ISU committee with oversight of the use of rDNA and regulated or other potentially biohazardous or infectious materials. The IBC reviews protocols for experiments or research using these biomaterials.

All research conducted at Idaho State University involving rDNA molecules must meet with current NIH Guidelines as a condition of institutional eligibility for NIH funds.

See the ISU Institutional Biosafety Committee Handbook for details of projects requiring biosafety review.
