16:00 EDT 24th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Agricultural Biotechnology Center (ABC) was founded by the Ministry of Agriculture in 1989 based upon the realisation that biotechnology and its application are the key factors in the future competitiveness of the Hungarian agriculture. Today, the institute is supervised by the Ministry of Agriculture and Regional Development. The center deals with biotechnology research and development for an environmentally sound Hungarian agriculture and participates in the training of biotechnologists and coordinaties of biotechnology research activities sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture and Regional Development.
Today the ABC is the largest research institute among the 24 sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture and Regional Development with 180 employees, 120 of which belong to the scientific staff, including 30-40 graduate students in various Ph.D programmes. Based on the concept of the Foundation Letter of the Institute, research is carried out in 4 institutes: Animal Biology, Environmental Biosafety Institute, Genetics and Plant Biology.
The research activity of ABC focuses on the molecular aspects of plant and animal development, breeding and modern environmental technologies.
The research groups of the institute have the right to select their field of research, which at present is dominated by molecular and cellular approaches. Collaborative projects with international partners represent an important section of the research activity.
The institute has state of art technical facilities, with an overall laboratory area of 4000 m2, a greenhouse (800 m2), and animal houses for small laboratory animals. The equipment and the basic instrumentation of the institute meet the international standards. Competitive research in biotechnology requires constant improvement of the instrumentation, thus the institute established central laboratories equipped for DNA synthesis and sequencing, bioinformatics and antibody production.
The institute regularly hosts international and national scientific meetings and each year organises a small conference "The ABC days" which provides a forum for the staff scientists to present their newest achievements
