Plant Biotechnology Lab

CPB utilizes new perspective in biotechnology to enhance the value of life through food quality and the discovery of new plant secondary metabolites in place of synthetic drugs. The center offers a platform for the exploration of tropical biodiversity and improvement of crop species through transgenic technology. This lab is under supervision of Dr. Wan Mohd Aizat Wan Kamaruddin.

At CPB, we offer facilities such as laminar air-flow, plant growth chamber, plant growth room (clean room), glass house, experimental plot, gene gun, -80°C and -20°C freezers and other relevant equipments.
