TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A committee of the National Academy of Sciences will hold three teleconferences this week to hear expert testimony on the need for a proposed biosecurity lab in Kansas.

The $1.14 billion National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan would be a center for research of deadly animal diseases.

The National Academy of Sciences panel has been asked to determine if the Department of Homeland Security needs the lab. The committee will recommend whether to proceed with design and construction, modify the project or find alternatives for conducting the research.
