LETTER FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
The year 2016 is the 14th on the path of the Journal of Biotechnology establishment and development. The Journal has become a prestigious national leading scientific journal in biotechnology and related fields.
By implementation of the new Regulation of Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology on the Organization and Management of scientific journals, new Editorial Board of the Journal of Biotechnology for the 2016-2020 tenure has been strengthened. Notably, the Editorial Board has been increased from 24 to 39 members, with the participation of 14 scientists from the institutions of Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, 14 scientists from leading universities, research institutions and hospitals in the country. Especially, for the first time, the Editorial Board has 10 foreign scientists (the United States, Germany, France, Japan, Norway and Sri Lanka) and 1 oversea Vietnamese scientist. This is one of the important prerequisites for gradually improving quality and enhancing the visibility of the Journal for national and international readers.
