Biotechnology is the use of living organisms or their products to create or modify products, processes, or services for human benefit. Biotechnology has applications in various fields such as agriculture, medicine, industry, environment, and energy. Biotechnology is also a rapidly evolving field that constantly generates new discoveries and innovations.
The international conference on biotechnology 2023 is a prestigious event that aims to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and students from around the world to share their latest research findings, innovations, and applications in biotechnology. The conference will cover topics such as:
Genetic Engineering and Synthetic Biology
Genetic engineering and synthetic biology are the techniques of manipulating the genetic material of living organisms or creating new biological systems from scratch. Genetic engineering and synthetic biology can be used to create novel organisms, traits, functions, or products for various purposes. Some examples of genetic engineering and synthetic biology applications are:
Gene editing: The technique of making precise changes in the DNA sequence of an organism using tools such as CRISPR-Cas9. Gene editing can be used to correct genetic defects, enhance desirable traits, or introduce new functions in plants, animals, or humans.
Gene therapy: The technique of delivering genes into cells or tissues to treat or prevent diseases. Gene therapy can be used to replace defective genes, add missing genes, or modify gene expression in patients with genetic disorders.
Synthetic biology: The technique of designing and constructing new biological systems or components that do not exist in nature. Synthetic biology can be used to create artificial cells, organs, circuits, or pathways for biomedical, industrial, or environmental applications.
Biomedical Engineering and Biopharmaceuticals
Biomedical engineering and biopharmaceuticals are the fields of applying engineering principles and biotechnology methods to solve medical problems and develop therapeutic products. Biomedical engineering and biopharmaceuticals can be used to improve human health and quality of life. Some examples of biomedical engineering and biopharmaceuticals applications are:
Biomaterials: The materials that interact with biological systems for medical purposes. Biomaterials can be used to create implants, prosthetics, scaffolds, sensors, or drug delivery systems for tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, or diagnostics.
Biomedical devices: The devices that measure, monitor, diagnose, treat, or assist biological functions. Biomedical devices can be used to create pacemakers, artificial organs, wearable devices, or robotic surgery systems for cardiovascular, neurological, orthopedic, or surgical applications.
Biopharmaceuticals: The pharmaceutical products that are derived from biological sources or produced by biotechnology methods. Biopharmaceuticals can be used to create vaccines, antibodies, enzymes, or hormones for immunological, infectious, metabolic, or hormonal disorders.
Industrial Biotechnology and Biofuels
Industrial biotechnology and biofuels are the fields of using biotechnology methods to produce or process materials, chemicals, or fuels from renewable biological resources. Industrial biotechnology and biofuels can be used to enhance sustainability and reduce environmental impact. Some examples of industrial biotechnology and biofuels applications are:
Bioprocessing: The process of using biological agents such as microorganisms, enzymes, or cells to convert raw materials into useful products. Bioprocessing can be used to create bioplastics, biofertilizers, biocatalysts, or biosensors for packaging, agriculture, chemical, or sensor applications.
Biofuels: The fuels that are derived from biological sources such as plants, algae, or waste. Biofuels can be used to create bioethanol, biodiesel, biogas, or biohydrogen for transportation, power generation, or heating applications.
Environmental Biotechnology and Bioremediation
Environmental biotechnology and bioremediation are the fields of using biotechnology methods to monitor, protect, or restore the environment. Environmental biotechnology and bioremediation can be used to address environmental issues such as pollution, climate change, or biodiversity loss. Some examples of environmental biotechnology and bioremediation applications are:
Biomonitoring: The process of using biological indicators such as microorganisms, plants, or animals to assess the quality or condition of the environment. Biomonitoring can be used to detect pollutants, toxins, or pathogens in water, soil, or air.
Bioremediation: The process of using biological agents such as microorganisms plants, or fungi to degrade or remove contaminants from the environment. Bioremediation can be used to treat wastewater, solid waste, oil spills, or radioactive waste.
The international conference on Biotechnology 2023 will provide a unique platform for participants to exchange ideas, network, and collaborate on advancing the field of biotechnology. The conference will feature keynote speeches, invited talks, oral presentations, poster sessions, workshops, tutorials, exhibitions, and competitions. The conference will also offer awards for the best paper, best student paper, best poster, and best innovation.
The international conference on Biotechnology 2023 will be held on October 10-12, 2023 at the Marriott Hotel in Boston, USA. The conference is organized by the International Society for Biotechnology (ISB) and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). The conference is sponsored by Pfizer, Novartis, DuPont, and ExxonMobil.
