National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC)Bangkok - Thailand
The National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC) was first set up under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Energy on 20 September 1983. After the establishment of the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) on 30 December 1991, BIOTEC became one of the NSTDA centers, operating outside the normal framework of civil service and state enterprises. This enabled the Center to operate more effectively to support and transfer technology for the development of industry, agriculture, natural resources, environment and consequently the social and economic well-being of Thai people. Other centers under the NSTDA family include National Metal and Materials Technology Center (MTEC), National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC), National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) and Technology Management Center (TMC).
Organisation dedicated to advanced research and training, with special regard to the developing world. Includes overview of projects, affiliated centers, training, funding, with campus at New Delhi, India and headquartered in Trieste, Italy.
NCGRP conserves genebanks for species diversity of crops and animals important to agriculture, landscapes and environmental sustainability, beyond seed storage using cryogenics. Serves as repository for semen, graftable plant buds or in vitro plantlets, for the US Department of Agriculture in Fort Collins, Colorado.
The Mission And Objective Of The National Center For The Biotechnology Workforce is Represent, Enable And Provide Leadership At The National Level For The Biotechnology Workforce With Compatible Organizations, Educational And Training Institutions.
Human genetic engineering is about genetically engineering human beings by modifying their genotypes before birth. The Genotype is the genetic constitution of an individual with respect to a particular character under consideration. This is done to control the traits possessed by the individual after his/her birth. The cells of our body contain encoded information about the body's growth, structure and functioning in the form of genes. Human gene
