ASN is excited to participate in the upcoming Eurobiotech conference to be held in Krakow, Poland from 23-25 September, 2019. Our chair, Joanna Hoffmann, will give an invited talk about the importance of art/science synergy, and the benefits for both artists and scientists.
Agrobiotechnology and Personalised Medicine will be the leading motives of the 7th Eurobiotech, the European Congress of Life Sciences. Many of the critical issues of modern agriculture and medicine relate to biotechnologies. And since biotechnology is often controversial, the 7th edition of the European Congress of Life Sciences Eurobiotech will address some critical questions:
Who needs modern biotech and why?
Will it be possible to perform modern agriculture as well as personalised medicine without it?
Do we have any chance to avoid innovative biotechnologies in order to guarantee food, feed, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, and bio-materials for 10 billion people from the perspective of the year 2050?
The 7th edition of the European Congress of Life Sciences Eurobiotech will attempt to find the answers to these and many more questions using solid bioscience: bioinformatics, genomics, synthetic biology, and microbiology, in addition to the newest molecular techniques such as sequencing, new breeding techniques [NBTs], and plant diagnostics.
