The 5th Workshop on Microbial Resources

“Innovative ideas in application of microorganisms”

Please have a look at the Photo Gallery here!

The previous workshops in which top scientists from various industries and universities gave outstanding talks were very well received by the participants.  We are sure the importance of applied microbiology has again been recognized.  Based on this experience, the 5th Workshop on Microbial Resources (5WMR) was held on June 15.  The topic of 5WMR was a new idea for cultivation/fermentation, establishment of novel assay system, and business strategies in a bioventure.  Participants were over 65, which had not been expected until the opening.  The news of this workshop may appear in July issue of Nikkei Biobusiness.
