SCIENCE MEETS INDIGENOUS KNOWLEDGE

With the rush for natural products development and bioprospecting from the world’s natural resources, it has become even more important to document Traditional Knowledge to ensure that the indigenous communities who have practiced such knowledge over the centuries are duly acknowledged should their knowledge be used in the development of natural products or bioprospecting.

EXTENSIVE RESEARCH

Sarawak is well-endowed with a diverse wealth of biological resources i.e. biodiversity, that potentially have unique applications in healthcare, agriculture, and industries. Bioprospecting of the biodiversity to discover potential and useful applications very much depends on implementing a highly robust R&D programme involving various scientific tools including biotechnology.

Well-equipped and specialized laboratories

Our research facilities provide the State with the means to prospect its biodiversity through R&D and share the benefits made from the discoveries with the people. 

Traditional Knowledge Documentation

Facilitates local indigenous communities in the State in preserving their Traditional Knowledge through proper recording or documenting techniques.
