CCB-Microbial Biodiversity Library

                   ccb mbl 4
CCB-MBL was established in 2013 and is currently operated under the Centre for Chemical Biology at Universiti Sains Malaysia (CCB@USM). The launching of CCB-MBL is expected to be launched on February 2018.

CCB-MBL is an interdisciplinary project combining fundamental research, cultures supply service to communities, industrial application, and educational outreach and community services. One of the major aims of the culture collection is to collect, identify, characterize, and preserve microorganisms from diverse Malaysian niches, especially from mangrove and marine environments. High-throughput screening of these microbes is essential as they offer a wealth of novel enzymes, secondary metabolites, and other bioactive compounds with potential usage in health, biofuel production, bioremediation, and various industries.

The specific aims of CCB-MBL are:
  • Isolate, identify, maintain and preserve microorganisms from diverse Malaysian niches, especially from mangrove and marine environments.
  • Provide services for culture supply, identification and characterization of bacteria
  • Serve as a research and educational centre for microbial diversity

What Does CCB-MBL Do?    

  • Collection
    According to the Convention on Biological Diversity, global biodiversity has been on the decline over the past several decades. It is therefore imperative that we preserve what we have before it is lost forever. Most of Malaysia’s biodiversity is still untapped and unexplored, especially the microbial diversity. We are focused on the bacterial strains isolated from different niches in Malaysia focusing now on mangroves and marines isolates in the hope to maintain and to preserve the vast array of microorganisms that are found in Malaysia.
  • Development Projects and Research
    Our interests are to study the microbial diversity and their potential in secondary metabolites production which carries important applications in industry.

  • Microbial Culture Supply, Microbial Identification/Characterization Services
    We are now offering a range of services, including bacterial culture supply, microbial identification via 16S rRNA gene sequencing, extraction of high quality genomic DNA, and phenotypic characterization using the Biolog Gen III MicroPlate. In the future, we will look into potential applications of the microorganisms such as applicable enzymes and secondary metabolites in the medical fields and other commercial values.
