Microbial biotechnology is a dynamic and exceptional field of Life Sciences with a diversified range of products and possible applications in therapy and disease prevention; water and waste treatment; production of high added value biomolecules; agriculture; environmental control...etc.
In addition, the evolution of new sequencing technologies with new bioinformatics analysis tools has propelled biotechnologies towards new application perspectives. The use of "omics" technologies (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, etc.) has led to the discovery of new genes (and proteins) or metabolic pathways that benefit humans. Microbial biodiversity remains one of the planet's greatest assets and its exploration has always allowed and continues to expand the range of products and bioprocesses covered by microbial activities with exploitable properties.
Microbial biotechnologies bring concrete improvements in the fields of health, the environment, industrial production, agriculture, and energy: bioenergy; use of microbial toxins in therapy and aesthetic surgery; microbiome engineering...etc
In this context, UAI and AMM are organizing the 5th International Congress of Microbial Biotechnologies on 16, 17 and 18 October 2019 under the theme "Microbial Biotechnologies and Socio-economic Development Opportunities" BIOMIODS
