The workshop took place over two days, 14 and 15 February 2011 and was constructed with exclusive detail information on natural products between the two countries. The presentation and discussion was participated by Thai scientists from BIOTEC, Chulalongkorn University, Kasetsart University, Mahidol University, Khon Kaen University and Prince of Songkla University while UK scientists comprised of the experts from John Innes Centre, University of Warwick, University of Aberdeen, Bristol University, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and The Food and Environment Research Agency (Fera). The discussion covered on bioresource technology and molecular research of bioactive compounds derived from plants, marine organisms, microbes including insect-pathogenic fungi, endophytes and actinomycetes, and also plant- microbe interactions.
Under “UK-Thailand: Partners in Science” program, this is the third workshop that co-organized by BIOTEC and the British High Commission. UK-Brazil-Thailand Joint Seminar on Agricultural Biotechnology was held in February 2010 and UK-Thailand Workshop on Food Borne Disease and Vaccine Technology was held in January 2011.
