Federation of National Societies of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (FAOBMB)
Founded in 1972, FAOBMB is a Federation of National Societies of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the Asian and Oceanian Region. The primary purpose of FAOBMB is to promote the science of biochemistry and molecular biology, including education, research and technological applications, worldwide and in particular in the Asian and Oceanian Region.
International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology – founded in 1955 – unites biochemists and molecular biologists in 75 countries that belong to the Union as an Adhering Body or Associate Adhering Body represented by a biochemical society, a national research council or an academy of sciences. The Union is devoted to promoting research and education in biochemistry and molecular biology throughout the world and gives particular attention to areas where the subject is still in its early development.
New Zealand Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (NZSBMB)
The New Zealand Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology was formed in 1972, to promote this discipline in New Zealand and to facilitate communication between those involved. It is open to all with interests in biochemistry and/or molecular biology. The Society organises and promotes regional activities, as well as a national meeting that is held annually (often in conjunction with societies with overlapping interests in biology and chemistry).
Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)
The Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) unites biochemists and molecular biologists from around Australia. The Society is devoted to promoting research, new developments and education in biochemistry and molecular biology.
New Zealand Microbiological Society (NZMS)
The aim of the New Zealand Microbiological Society is to 'foster the generation and dissemination of knowledge of microbiology in New Zealand'. We achieve our stated aims through representation on national and international committees. In addition, the society makes submissions on issues relevant to practicing microbiologists or to education policies in New Zealand.
New Zealand Society of Plant Biologists
New Zealand Society of Plant Biologists promotes the teaching and research of plant biology in New Zealand, and encourages the exchange of information among those with an interest in Plant Biology.
The membership is comprised primarily of professional scientists, academics and research students with interests in Plant Biology.
MapNet is running under an aegis of New Zealand-based molecular and quantitative geneticists from organisations involved in genomics related research. Organisations represented include Plant and Food Research, University of Otago, AgResearch, Scion (NZ Forest Research Ltd), Environmental Sciences Research Ltd, Livestock Improvement Corporation, Massey University, University of Auckland, University of Canterbury, and Landcare Research Ltd. These organisations encompass New Zealand’s health and primary production sectors, as well as conservation genetics. A key driver for MapNet is to co-ordinate scientists from different organisation using common technologies and analytical platforms, to foster the development of multidisciplinary and cross-sector research projects, and to facilitate knowledge exchange between researchers.
