The International Workshop on ASEAN Microbial Database and Analysis Tools has been successfully held online today. The workshop aims to promote successful management and analysis of microbial database for effective utilization of microorganisms. The quality of management of microbial culture collection and the participation in creating a global database can thus be improved. It also facilitates opportunities for database integration among institutions in ASEAN. In particular, AmiBase provides a service hub and standardized protocol for sharing microbial diversities data.
Trainers for the workshop include AnMicro Training Team from the National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC) Thailand, Dr. Ni’matuzahroh from the University of CoE – Research Center for Bio-Molecule Engineering (BIOME) Indonesia, and Dr. Atit Kanti University of CoE – Research Center for Bio-Molecule Engineering (BIOME) Insonesia.
The event was co-organized by ASEAN Network of Microbial Utilization (AnMicro) and University of CoE – Research Center for Bio-Molecule Engineering (BIOME), Universitas Airlangga. The conference is arranged in Collaboration with Indonesian Culture Collection (InaCC), Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) as an institution that handles the management culture collections in Indonesia, and Thailand Bioresource Research Center (TBRC) Thailand as the founder of ASEAN Microbial Database (AmiBase).
