First International and Third National Conference
Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Bioengineering
The Conference Biology is the study of living things which helps to acquaintance about ourselves and the subsistence atmosphere around with some scientific proofs. To discover intellection of problems and to make complex things simple in biology we are using various technologies which were developed through research. Among all the branches of biology, biotechnology plays major role in research which is aligned with all the branches of biology to develop new technologies. To do any modifications in existing biological system we use various methods of biotechnology and which help in making impossible things to possible like cloning, plant tissue culture, transplantation experiments, stem cell therapy, bioremediation, r-DNA technology in development of vaccines, drug discovery, etc. Another branch of biology which is playing key and equal role along with biotechnology is bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is the field of science in which biology, computer science, and information technology merge to form a single discipline. This gives the biological information of the organisms to make availability of existing data and to check the expected result possibility in advance, evolutionary relationship between organisms, lead identification, structure and sequence of particular proteins, algorithm development, data mining, etc. Bioengineering is the physical side of biotechnology which focuses on the genetic manipulation in the biological systems. These are all the known techniques as the days pass the necessity to improve technology for current trends also increases simultaneously for future perspectives. First International and Third National Conference on Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Bioengineering is an essential annual event of Society for Applied Biotechnology for industry leaders, policy makers, scientists, researchers and other professionals working in the area of biotechnology, bioinformatics and bioengineering. This conference informs scientific community of advances, barriers, opportunities, dealing with challenges and action options through direct exchange of information which may influence science and business endeavors on an international and national scale.
Conference Theme Researchers are invited to submit abstract(s) for oral and poster presentation. Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to: Biodiversity and Biotechnology Plant, Food and Agricultural Biotechnology Animal, Marine and Fisheries Biotechnology Environmental and Industrial Biotechnology Pharmaceutical and Medical Biotechnology Microbial and Analytical Biotechnology Nanobiotechnology and Nanobioengineering Genomics, Proteomics and Bioinformatics Enzyme, Protein and Tissue Engineering Biochemical and Biomedical Engineering Biotechnology Research and Opportunities In addition to these key areas of research interest, all other aspects of Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Bioengineering will receive attention.
