ReynoldpassWhen I first received the acceptance letter from SBC to carry out my industrial training, I was excited because my long awaited wish was finally granted. I’m currently taking my degree in Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), studying Industrial Chemistry.

I definitely think that carrying out my industrial training at the Sarawak Biodiversity Centre (SBC) was one of the best choices I have ever made. I am currently studying for a Degree in Biology from UiTM.

Though my attachment and training at SBC’s microbiology laboratory, I was able to apply the theory and skills that I have learnt in class in a real working environment. I also learned many new things and gained knowledge that will be useful for my final year research project.

During my industrial training, I was attached to the Molecular Biology laboratory. As I did plant tissue culture for my final year project at UMS, I was unfamiliar with molecular work. However, I took up this challenge of learning something new.

I am currently studying for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biotechnology Resource from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak and will be graduating soon.

It has been a great experience to be attached to SBC’s Molecular Biology laboratory, given the new skills, knowledge and techniques that I have picked up through a very hands-on experience in experimentation.

Throughout my training at SBC, I was attached to the Plant Preparation, Extraction and Analytical Chemistry laboratories. I now know what the basic procedures are for receiving plant collections from the field, to preparing them for extraction in the laboratory.
