In line with the Natural Product Discovery programme in Sarawak Biodiversity Centre (SBC), to date, SBC’s microbial library currently hosts a collection of 11,000 actinomycetes strains and 6,800 fungi strains. Microbial strains are purified, identified and preserved with their bioactivity characterized.

We have collected a total 2,153 plant and soil samples from 61 locations across Sarawak. Soil microbes occurs in natural and man-made environments; they differ with soil type, pH, vegetation, geographical location and climatic condition. Biological diversity in Sarawak works a surrogate for chemical diversity. Below are images of some beautiful actinomycetes and fungi isolated from samples across Sarawak.
