Message from the Chairperson of BHBD Alliance

With the coming of 2019 New Year, on behalf of the Council of the Open Biodiversity and Health Big Data (BHBD) Alliance, I would like to express my sincere gratitude and best wishes to all members of the Alliance!

The BHBD Alliance was established in October 2018 in Beijing. Five instituions from China, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Thailand became the founding members, which marked the first step of the Alliance.

The year 2019 is a crucial year for the development of BHBD Alliance. We hope that all members of the Alliance continue working to promote the level of participation and influence of BHBD. We look forward to welcoming more new members of the BHBD family!
