International Conference On NEW APPROACHES IN BIOTECHNOLOGY AND BIOSCIENCES “NABB-2016”
February 18-20, 2016
The World population is likely to grow to 8 billion in 2025 and stabilize at about 10 billion by 2050 with major increases being in developing countries. Coherence among elements of sustainability like food security, environment, clean energy systems, judicious use of natural resources, application of advanced technologies and human as well as live stock health is important for civic society worldwide. Environmental soundness as well as fragility is of utmost concern to all living beings, especially under climate change as it determines the expression of potential productivity of crops, animals, microorganisms etc. The lack of civic amenities in rural areas in many developing countries as well as unplanned expansion in urban areas with expanding slums have led to proliferation of existing diseases and emergence of new diseases.
The situation calls for commensurate advances in bio-medical sciences, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and health care systems. This will call for a blend of traditional ecological prudence with frontier technologies, particularly biotechnology and allied biosciences. Agricultural biotechnologies can help achieve the productivity gains needed to feed a growing global population, introduce resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses , improve food and feed quality, nutritional value and shelf life and lower emissions of methane and other green house gases etc.
This International Conference on New Approaches in Biotechnology and Biosciences-2016 “NABB-2016” with focus on Agriculture, Food, Pharmacy and Environment aims to enlighten advances in biotechnological researches in Agriculture including crops, Aqua culture and Livestock; Food Technology; Pharmacy and Environment as well as their applications in industry and academics. In view of globally growing business in biotechnology, emphasis will be laid on topical issues like Plant and Environmental biotechnologies including Molecular Marker Assisted Selection , Transgenic plants and Crops ; Phyto-Bioremediation, and Microbial diversity; Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology (TB, Vaccines, Cancer, AIDS, Hepatitis, Arthritis, Hemophilia, bone fractures, multiple sclerosis, and cardiovascular disorders antibiotics and antibodies); Industrial Biotechnology; Biomedical and Bioprocess Engineering; Protein Engineering ; innovations in understanding of structure and functions of genes and proteins ; genome and proteome information; Pharmacogenomics, Gene therapy, Genetic testing (or genetic screening); Drug production; Disease diagnostics: DNA Computing, Bioinformatics, Nano-Biotechnology etc.
This conference will be jointly organized by RBS Engineering Technical Campus, Bichpuri, Agra and Society for Sustainable Agriculture (SSARM) India for exchange of knowledge and experiences among researchers, development functionaries and policy planners and to provide opportunities to discuss such issues, plan collaborations in areas of concern among international communities and to make recommendations to tackle some of the above stated problems and issues.
The organizing committee cordially invites you and your colleagues to participate in this event.
Your active participation will surely enrich the discussion and emerging recommendations. We shall be glad to meet you at Agra – The city of the Historic Taj Mahal. Join us in this exciting opportunity.
