When I first encountered SBC’s website, I was attracted towards its main focus which is preserving the nature and do something for the community especially on bioprospecting. I was excited when I received the acceptance letter from SBC to carry out my industrial training here and was attached at Microbiology laboratory as I am currently studying for a Degree in Microbiology at UKM. 

Throughout my training, I had learned many new things especially on actinomycetes and its unique morphology which is quite rare for me. Thus, the feelings of encountering rare microbes with rare morphology made me more excited in carrying out my training especially to sharpen up my (bacteria) streaking skills (onto solid media) and being able to describe the morphology of the microbes’ colony. Therefore, this training brings more interest and curiosity towards studies in the relationship between Microbiology and the Environment.

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.

Photo of Patricia BallaI am taking up a Bachelor’s Degree course in Biotechnology from Universiti Malaysia, Sabah (UMS). This industrial training at the Sarawak Biodiversity Centre (SBC) means a lot to me as it is the first working experience that I have had.

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.
