Bielefeld Center for Biotechnology CeBiTec hosts international conference on Algal Biotechnology
More than 110 scientists from 18 countries and 4 continents will participate in the 7th "International CeBiTec Research Conference" to discuss the challenges facing the exploitation of microalgae and cyanobacteria for industrial biotechnology, from biofuels to high value proteins and chemicals. The newest developments in this highly innovative research area of industrial biotechnology will be presented. "For the first time all invited speakers are international, coming from the USA, Australia, China, Korea and Mexico. Moreover, more than 80 % of the speakers selected based on the submitted abstracts are international contributors", highlights Prof. Dr. Olaf Kruse, the organiser of this highly acclaimed conference.
