An International Conference on “Biotechnology: Prospects and Challenges in Agriculture, Industry, Health and Environment” is being organized from April 22-26, 2013 at National Institute for Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (NIBGE), Faisalabad, Pakistan. Biotechnology has opened many avenues to exploit living organisms and their products for the betterment of biosphere and prosperity of mankind. Importance and the role of biotechnology have been recognized in several processes and products of food, feed, pharmaceutical and textile industry as well as in environmental protection. Technologies have been devised at global level that have a pronounced effect on agriculture, health, livestock, industry and environment. Current progress and advancements in the subject areas are the main focus of the proposed conference.

NIBGE is an internationally recognized Federal research body of Pakistan affiliated with ICGEB, Italy. Being a premier research institute, it has been our philosophy to promote a competent, vigorous and entrepreneurial environment concerning biotechnology related activities in research and innovation in the country. To apply modern and innovative techniques in agriculture, health, industry and environment we routinely offer training courses, conferences and symposia to support the study of most vibrant disciplines of science and technology.
