With our long collaborative work such as iCollect training workshop and members of AnMicro network between Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), Indonesia and TBRC under the National Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC), this year TBRC, BIOTEC and ITB has initiated the capacity building program by organizing a 5-day course for ITB students to come to BIOTEC to learn about research programs on biotechnology. The students had the opportunity to attend special lectures, visit BIOTEC facilities and other private biotechnology companies. Through this initiative, we hope to broaden and share our knowledge in biotechnology and strengthen our network within ASEAN as a whole.
