College of Bioresources and Agriculture


Overview: Departments(17) Researchers(254) Publications(8265) Projects(7202)


Highlands Experiment Farm, the Agricultural Exhibition Hall, the Agricultural Extension Committee, the Education and Research Center for Agricultural Automation, and the Hydrotech Research Laboratory. In addition, four organizations are informally affiliated with our college: the Farm Machinery Workshop, the Phytotron Laboratory, the Electron Microscope Laboratory, and the Isotope Laboratory.


CBA is actively developing all agriculture-related fields. We have moved rapidly to develop agricultural production technology in order to reach international agriculture research standards. We also research agricultural management, agricultural environment protection and agricultural sustainability in order to meet the national agricultural demands. We also promote agricultural standards in Taiwan.

CBA comprises several research highlights, including
  • Rice variety Tainan 16 based on Marker Assisted Selection
  • Coolbi family (green fluorescein Tg cloned pigs)
  • Authenticity identification of agricultural products
  • BioPerspectives and sustainable use of genetic bioresources
  • Wild-field monitoring system and pest forecast service
  • Plant factory and vertical farming

The twenty-first century will be the century of bio-resources, bioinformation, and biotechnology. At the beginning of the century, the college was renamed to better focus on the richness of bio-resources and bio-variety. The College will play a leading role in promoting sustainable agricultural development in Taiwan and Asia.

Dean's Message

Welcome to the College of Bioresources and Agriculture at National Taiwan University!

Agriculture was one of the pillars on which National Taiwan University was founded. Nowadays, we are facing many challenges of agricultural issues. As in the prestigious university and as a leading educational and research-oriented agricultural institute, we have had many scientific advancements and fostered many outstanding students, some of whom later devoting their knowledge and giving feedback to our society, taking leadership positions in a variety of industries, pursuing multiple research and academic careers, and serving in public and governmental organizations.

The College of Bioresources and Agriculture was originally founded as the College of Science and Agriculture of Taihoku Imperial University. In 1943 the College of Science and Agriculture was divided into the Colleges of Science and of Agriculture. In August 2002, the College of Agriculture was renamed the College of BioResources and Agriculture. Since 1945, the College has steadily expanded its programs to meet the growing demands of agricultural research and there are currently twelve departments and 5 institutes. 

The academic program of the college includes basic biology, the knowledge of life science theory, and the various applied skills involved in promoting production, and biological protection. The goal is to train students to understand basic life phenomenon, and related knowledge and testing methods, in order to cultivate a working knowledge of applied biological technology. In order to satisfy the national needs for agricultural development, we have eight affiliated organizations: the Experimental Farm, the Experimental Forest, the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, the Highlands Experiment Farm, the Agricultural Exhibition Hall, the Agricultural Extension Committee, the Education and Research Center for Agricultural Automation, and the Hydrotech Research Laboratory. In addition, four organizations are informally affiliated with our college: the Farm Machinery Workshop, the Phytotron Laboratory, the Electron Microscope Laboratory, and the Isotope Laboratory.
        
Our college is actively developing all agriculture-related fields. We have moved rapidly to develop agricultural production technology in order to reach international agriculture research standards. We also research agricultural management, agricultural environment protection and agricultural sustainability in order to meet the national agricultural demands. We also promote agricultural standards in Taiwan. The Institutes of Entomology and Forestry have offered graduate programs for on-the-job students since 1999 and the Institute of Agricultural Economics has done so since 2000.

The twenty-first century will be the century of bio-resources, bioinformation, and biotechnology. At the beginning of the century, the college was renamed to better focus on the richness of bio-resources and bio-variety. The College will play a leading role in promoting sustainable agricultural development in Taiwan and Asia.
