6th Annual International GSTF Conference on Advances in Biotechnology (BIOTECH) 2016 Singapore

  • Conference Call
  • The 6th Annual Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Advances in Biotech­nol­ogy (BIOTECH) 2016 will be held on March 2829, 2016 in Sin­ga­pore at the Fort Can­ning Hotel and is organ­ised by the Global Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Forum (GSTF).

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    Biotech­nol­ogy is a field of applied biol­ogy that involves the use of liv­ing organ­isms and bio­processes in engi­neer­ing, tech­nol­ogy, med­i­cine and other fields requir­ing bio­prod­ucts. The con­cept encom­passes a wide range of pro­ce­dures for mod­i­fy­ing liv­ing organ­isms accord­ing to human pur­poses — going back to domes­ti­ca­tion of ani­mals, cul­ti­va­tion of plants, and “improve­ments” to these through breed­ing pro­grams that employ arti­fi­cial selec­tion and hybridization.

    This multi-​disciplinary con­fer­ence aims to pro­vide a chal­leng­ing forum and vibrant oppor­tu­nity for researchers and indus­try prac­ti­tion­ers to share their orig­i­nal research results and prac­ti­cal devel­op­ment expe­ri­ences on spe­cific new chal­lenges and emerg­ing issues.

    Keynote Addresses

    • Prof. Christo­pher Franco – Med­ical Biotech­nol­ogy, Flinders Med­ical Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy, School of Med­i­cine, Flinders Uni­ver­sity, Australia
    • Prof. Liu Yu – School of Civil and Envi­ron­men­tal Engi­neer­ing, Nanyang Tech­no­log­i­cal Uni­ver­sity, Singapore

    Con­fer­ence Highlights

    Con­fer­ence Pro­ceed­ings: Print ISSN: 22512489, E-​Periodical ISSN: 22512497 will be indexed by Ulrich­sweb, EBSCO, Cross­Ref, Pro­Quest, will be sub­mit­ted to Sco­pus, Sci­enceDi­rect and Cabell’s Direc­to­ries and will be likely indexed by Pub Med Cen­tral amongst oth­ers, where applicable.

    Jour­nal: All authors who present their papers at the con­fer­ence will be invited to sub­mit an extended ver­sion of their research paper for the GSTF Jour­nal of Bio­Sciences (JBio) (Print ISSN: 22513140, E-​periodical: 22513159). All sub­mit­ted papers will go through blind review process for accep­tance. All accepted papers (after the review process) will be included in the JBio on a com­pli­men­tary basis (free-​of-​charge). GSTF JBio is hosted and pub­lished on Springer’s Open Access pub­lish­ing plat­form — Global Sci­ence Jour­nals (GSJ). In addi­tion, it will be indexed by PubMed Cen­tral (PMC), CAS, EBSCO, Cross­Ref, Pro­Quest, Cabell’s Direc­to­ries, and will be sub­mit­ted to Google Scholar, Sci­enceDi­rect, Index­Coper­ni­cus, amongst others.

    Book: Selected authors will be invited to con­tribute book chap­ters in “Appli­ca­tions of Biotech­nol­ogy in Devel­op­ing Coun­tries” to be pub­lished by GSTF. The book will be edited by Dr. Farhad Memarzadeh, Direc­tor, Divi­sion of Tech­ni­cal Resources/​ORF, National Insti­tutes of Health (NIH), USA.

    Best Paper Awards and Best Stu­dent Paper Awards will be con­ferred at the con­fer­ence (in order to qual­ify for the award, the paper must be pre­sented at the conference).

    Panel Pro­pos­als are invited for sub­mis­sion. A min­i­mum of three papers cen­ter­ing on a spe­cific topic will be accepted for sub­mis­sion under Panel Cat­e­gory.
