This scientific workshop aim to provide knowledge, exposure to techniques and hands-on experience for researchers in microbiology and molecular biology mainly.

Event details

It will provide an opportunity to learn about and keep up-to-date with the rapidly progressing area microbiology and molecular approaches. You can expect a mixture of theoretical and practical (hands-on) aspects of molecular techniques (such as PCR and sequencing & Biolog GEN III Technology) in our Agri-food, Pests and Diseases Management laboratory. It will cover presentations on the areas of microbiology (including fungal diseases of plant), environmental microbiology, molecular biology and microarray meta-analysis of bioinformatics. Participant will be exposed to Biolog Microbial Identification System which uses the same platform for identification of anaerobic bacteria, yeast  and filamentous fungi.  The system also enables researchers to study and monitor shifts of microbial population in wastewater treatment, in compost and in soils microbial diversity. The workshop will be held at School of Food Science and Technology, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT). In addition, we will visit the Kelah Sanctuary, at Kenyir Lake where participant will get the opportunity to feed this freshwater fish while enjoying the natural environment.
