Scientific and Production Center “Armbiotechnology” NAS RA, state nonprofit organization (SPC “Armbiotechnology” SNPO NAS RA) was founded by the RA Government Decision in 2010 as a result of amalgamation of CJSC “SRI Biotechnology” (RA Ministry of Economy), and Center of Microbiology and Microbial Depository (NAS RA). It is the legal successor of the joint organizations.
SPC “Armbiotechnology” SNPO NAS RA includes “Institute of Biotechnology”, “Institute of Microbiology” and “Center of Microbial Depository”.


The gollowing non-government organizations operate in the Center: “Biotechnological Association of Armenia” (BAA) established in 2007 and “Armenian Microbiological Association” (AMA) established in 2009. The latter exercising its full membership rights is included into the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS).
