A high-level animal and biological safety laboratory was put into use Tuesday, according to Science and Technology Daily Wednesday.

Independently designed, constructed, and managed by China, the lab will conduct experiments on animals carrying infectious diseases.

Supported by Harbin Veterinary Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, the lab will conduct animal infection experiments on horses, cattle, sheep, poultry, mice, and monkeys, said the newspaper.

The construction of the lab started in 2012 and was completed in 2015.

The lab is expected to improve the country's abilities in prevention and research of severe infectious diseases. It will also provide support for the animal breeding industry and public health safety. (Xinhua)
