The School of Biosciences, Mar Athanasios College for Advanced Studies Tiruvalla (MACFAST) is hosting an International Conference “Biotechnological Advances towards Sustainable Development’ 2022 from June 27th to 29th 2022. This is the sixth international conference organized under Biospectrum series. Over the past two decades, the progression in Biotechnology has generated a wide range of novel products that have redefined the role of biotechnology in solving hunger and poverty. Modern Food & Industrial Biotechnology is an extension of ancient techniques for developing useful products by taking advantage of natural biological processes. As techniques and instrumentation are being refined, the technologies based on chemical processes are being increasingly replaced by those based on biological systems. The application of modern industrial biotechnology includes improving the added value of food and making food processing effective through fermentation, genetic engineering, enzyme engineering and protein engineering.
This conference aims to bring together leading academicians, scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Food and Industrial Biotechnology. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in this field.
Food and Nutrition: food processing, food fermentation technology, probiotics and nutraceuticals (including for COVID – 19)
Sustainable agriculture: Crop protection and Crop improvement, Biotic and abiotic stress response, Plant microbes interaction
Energy Environmental Sustainability: Bioenergy/Biofuels, Environmental protection, Waste to Wealth
