The 2011 TWAS
-
ROESEAP Symposium on Industrial Biotechnology will
be
held in the Congress Centre “Vision Hotel”, No.39 Xueyuan Road, Beijing,
China from August 26
-
30, 2011. The Symposium will start with a Welcome
Reception, a Keynote Lecture and buffet dinner on August 26 at 17.00 pm. The
official closing date will be on

August 29.


Background and subject of the Symposium

Global environmental problems and fuel crises have been promoting public
attentions on development of biotechnological process and alternative sources
for the production of fuels and chemicals. There is
broad consensus that
Industrial Biotechnology will play a significant role in sustainable chemistry,
renewable energy, detergent, textile, food and feed industries. The recent
financial crisis has provided even more incentive to boost national green
growth

initiatives and policies, whereas industrial biotechnology might
underpin green growth and innovation worldwide. This is especially true in the
developing countries where significant activity is taking place in the field of
industrial biotechnology.


The
objective of this symposium is to review the most recent progress in the
area of industrial biotechnology in developing countries. The symposium will
provide a good opportunity for researches from the developing countries to
exchange ideas, to share experi
ences, and to promote international
collaboration to accelerate the commercialization of new products or new
technologies. To achieve this, discussion will be focused on four major areas:
(1) biorefinery of fuels and chemicals; (2) production of bulk ferme
ntation
products; (3) biocatalysis and biotransformation; (4) development of novel
bio
-
based processes
; and (5) New emerging disciplines including industrial
systems biology and industrial synthetic biology
.



Introduction of the host organization

The Inst
itute of Microbiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMCAS), is a
leading research institute in the area of industrial biotechnology in China.
“Create brilliance from tiny microbes" has become the motto of researchers of
the institute for decades. Since its

establishment in 1958, the institute has
made tremendous contributions to solving the energy crisis, ensuring food
security, protecting the environment, and supporting bio
-
industry development.
The IMCAS has established a network of international collabor
ations that
involves scientists from the US, Canada, Australia, Japan, Singapore, Russia,
United Kingdom, France and other European countries. Through this
symposium, IMCAS is aiming to further strengthen the collaboration with the





3

researchers from other d
eveloping countries. In 2005

Institute of Microbiology,
Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMCAS) was selected as the CAS
-
TWAS
Fellowship Training Programme Base. The CAS
-
TWAS Fellowship Program
has been carried out smoothly during the past 5 years. IMCAS has received 13
scientists who wer
e awarded CAS
-
TWAS Fellowships from many Third World
countries such as Nigeria, Egypt, Senegal, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh,
including 5 awardees of the Postgraduate Fellowship, 4 winners of the
Postdoctoral Fellowship and 4 awardees of the Visiting S
cholar Fellowship.
IMCAS can provide multi
-
faceted training opportunities for those scholars from
developing countries who wish to pursue advanced research and postgraduate
training, postdoctoral research work in the fields of Life Sciences. IMCAS will
con
tinue to contribute significantly to research, teaching and academic
exchange in microbiology in the Third World countries.
