Baltic Blue Biotech Alliance International Conference 2018
International Conference "Blue Biotechnology in the Baltic Sea Region – from Science to Business" will take place on August 22 -24, 2018 at the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald, Germany.
Marine or "blue" biotechnology is a young field of modern biotechnology, based, upon well established traditions of basic science at universities of the Northern European shores. With the rise of the blue biotech business sector, biological ressources from marine habitats become more and more interesting. Due to their ability to adapt to harsh ocean environments, marine organisms are a promising source for new medical drugs, new enzymes for food and feed production and provide alternative ways of producing chemicals. Newest results in basic and applied science and successful results of economic implementation will be showcased.
The conference is linked to MIMAS2-Symposium Microbial Interactions in Marine Systems on August 20-21, 2018. The symposium takes place in the same location and is focused on basic science. Participants are invited to join both conferences.
