National Biobank of Thailand

Support infrastructure for the conservation of biological resources of Thailand. Research and development of biological resources using advance technology to evaluate the value (gene level research, active compounds) potential and utilization. Therefore, biomaterials collected at Biobank are a vital platform for the current and future national bio-economy development

Vision

National Biobank of Thailand (NBT) supports infrastructure for the conservation of the biological resources of Thailand, and carries out research using advanced technology on the value and potential for development of biological resources from the genetic to the ecosystem level. Biomaterials collected and stored at Biobank are a vital platform for maintaining the current and future bio-economy of the kingdom

Mission

  1. Support the country's infrastructure for long-term conservation of biological resources

  2. Increase research capacity and develop new innovations for long term conservation of biological resources

  3. National reference for utilization of biological resources information 

  4. Create knowledge, databases and results analysis platform for sustainable use of information
