The Petri Dish Goes Online

March 15, 2017

The Petri Dish, the first science newspaper in Malaysia published by the Malaysian Biotechnology Information Centre (MABIC) is now a full-fledged online portal at

The newspaper has been circulated to all key stakeholders in the biotechnology circle in Malaysia for the past seven years, including the ministers. With an aim of getting biotechnology news to a wider audience, especially the general public, MABIC has initiated the digital portal. With this new portal, it is hoped that the public will be more receptive to emerging technologies, and policymakers will be able to make informed decisions on policies, regulations, and funding, while encouraging the younger people to pursue STEM education and careers.

Subscription to the portal is now open at The Petri Dish.
