1. Promote and support resource facilities, research laboratories, and individual researchers regarding operation, research, and development in the areas of methods, techniques, and instrumentation relevant to the analysis and synthesis of biomolecules;
2. Provide mechanisms for the self-evaluation and improvement of procedural and operational accuracy, precision, and efficiency in resource facilities and research laboratories;
3. Provide a mechanism for the education of resource facility and research laboratory staff, users, administrators, and interested members of the scientific community.
SEASR will foster excellence in all areas of biotechnology and business through communication, education, training, and collaboration amongst members.
