Recently microbes have been used for various purposes. The convenience of stakeholders to access information sources of microbial presence will have an impact on potential microbial dissemination, improved institutional services, and increased sources of income for microbial collection agencies. The management of systematic collection of microbial data will improve service professionalism and secure the source of microbial biodiversity itself. The service of microbial needs is not only intended for the local needs in Indonesia alone but for users around the world as well.

AnMicro is an ASEAN Networking on Microbial Utilisation. The network aims to strenghthen the research and human resource capacity throught some collaborations among members and dialogues with other international organizations. AnMicro workshop to be held at Universitas Airlangga is an international workshop that invites researchers and practitioners from ASEAN countries that are engaged in the utilization of microbes. This workshop is held to equip the participants with the storage and management of microbial data as an effort to collect microbial collection at the ASEAN level.

The workshop will involve more less 30 researchers or practitioners as its participants. The participants are engaged in the utilization and collection of microbes from ASEAN countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Philippine, Thailand, Mynmar, Laos, Vietnam and Singapore.

The workshop's outputs include the realization of a computerized data collection system of microbes that can be easily accessed by users, and the initiation of collaboration among institutions engaged in the field of microbial utilization. A provision of comprehensive and systematic microbial data will enhance the role of institutions in microbial trade at the ASEAN and the world level. SCHEDULE and for Registration Please (SIGN UP)
