‘Biotechnology-Driven Innovations Towards Sustainable Development’ for Asian Federation of Biotechnology Malaysia Chapter International Symposium 2019 (AFOBMCIS 2019)

Submissions Deadline: 30th November 2020

Guest Editors

The participants in AFOBMC International Symposium 2019 are invited to contribute manuscript to Bioengineered. The manuscript will go through a rigorous review process before being published as open access articles. More information about the conference, is available here.

This special issue is dedicated to Bioengineered to share new and innovative research in biotechnology towards sustainable development. The new biotechnological processes and advances in the areas of agriculture, environmental bioremediation, medicine/life sciences (such as nanotechnology, biopharmaceuticals) and industry (such as biofuels, bioenergy, biomaterials), offer a vast spectrum of applications. These processes and innovations have contributed to the growth in economy and as well as improving the quality of lives. New industries structures are likely to emerge, driven by the technological innovations to produce various environmentally friendly products or to develop more sustainable industries. Any innovative technology, process or strategy that can be integrated in the existing processing industry would be priority interest of the industries. The success of biotechnology depends on support from public and private institutions/sectors to address sustainability issues and to tailor the technology to local needs.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Bioprocess engineering
  • Molecular and genetic engineering
  • Plant metabolite engineering
  • System and structural biology
  • Nanobiotechnology, bioinformatics
  • Biopharmaceuticals processing
  • Sustainable biorefinery
  • Innovative biomass conversion strategy
  • Bioenergy production/process, biobased materials production
