BEIJING, May 21 (Xinhua) -- A total of 3.05 billion yuan (495 million U.S. dollars) has been allocated to finance the operation of state key scientific laboratories nationwide this year, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) said on Wednesday.

Of the total, 2.19 billion yuan will be used for the operation and research of the 259 laboratories, with the remainder targeted for equipment purchases and upgrades.
