The ASEAN South American German (ASAG) Biotech Network is a global web portal designed to facilitate and enable the ASAG Biotech Network event alumni and it's associates of scientists, technicians, governmental organisations and policy makers, to easily access information and work groups in the fields of infection research and biotechnology.

Combined with an online "group" presence on the professional networking site "LinkedIn", the ASAG Biotech network targets and supports collaboration and partnerships with R&D institutes, industry (especially small and medium sized companies), scientific opinion leaders, government ministries and related agencies.

This homepage provides easy access to many of the research groups of the institutes, universities and biotech companies of Germany with an ever increasing presence from the partners in South America and ASEAN. Should you find yourself currently unlisted yet active in these fields and from these regions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly from the main menu options - we would be delighted to hear from you.

This site also provides numerous links to facilitate direct access to information in infection biology and biotechnology and, to alumni and member associates, extensive learning and skill development resources covering technology transfer, business planning and international business communication skills - specifically customised for scientific and academic audiences looking to branch out into business or simply to professionalise their activities.

Combined with the LinkedIn group network, members can keep in regular contact from a scientific, commercial and social perspective - enhancing the co-operation of research and development projects, exchanging data and ideas, accelerating results and reducing costs.

Scientists solve structure of infection tool used by Yersinia

Abdominal pain, fever, diarrhoea – these symptoms could point to an infection with the bacterium Yersinia. The bacterium’s pathogenic potential is based on a syringe-like injection apparatus called injectisome. For the first time, an international team of researchers including scientists at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig, Germany, has unraveled this molecular syringe’s spatial conformation. The researchers were able to demonstrate that the length of Yersinia’s injectisome’s basal body, which crosses the bacterial cell wall, is adjustable – very likely an adaptation to physical stress.
