New Year’s Greeting from India
It gives me great pleasure in extending my best wishes to you for the coming New Year 2022. In the new year, let us make a resolution which can contribute towards solution of some pressing issue, such as mitigation of climate change, which has wreaked havoc this year in the form of severe cyclones and extremely hot climate on our planet. This way we can make this world a better place to live. If each one of us AFOBian makes a resolution, it can have an impact directly on environment through our action and indirectly through encouragement of others, such as our students, who tend to follow us. Let us also encourage our colleagues to become a member of AFOB to get connected with reputed scientific community and for taking biotechnology research and innovation forward. I hope that the new year will see holding of scientific webinars/workshops/symposia etc. on current biotechnology issues for our benefit. Wishing you more calmness, happiness and success in the New Year.

New Year’s Greeting from Japan
Congratulations to all AFOB members on the new year!
Since I’ve met many of you at ACB2019 in Tamsui, Taiwan, I have been deprived of the opportunity to meet you in person, and I am aware that the last face-to-face meeting of AFOB events was ARS2020 in Yogyakarta in February 2020. It has been always a pleasure to meet you all face to face in such an AFOB meeting.
