Scope and Objectives

There is no doubt that biotechnology research offer
great potentia
l for sustainable development.
Although advanced biotechnology
-
based research is
costly, it is still the sole hope for developing
countries worldwide to catch. Most of developing
countries committed themselves to rely on science
and technology to overcome

poverty and diseases.
Fortunately most of these countries still have some
advantages to benefit from gene revolution, such as
high degree of biodiversity, very rich natural
genetic resources and highly qualified human
resources received their training an
d postgraduate
education abroad. Developing countries including
African, Middle East and Arab countries suffering,
to some extent, from the same agricultural and
heath problems, having the same dreams and hopes.
On the other hand, International organizatio
ns
(COMSATS, UNESCO)
kindly
support
efforts
aiming at developing of
real partnership for the
benefits of
all
. This conference is an initiative
effort
of COMSATS
aiming at merging scientific
communities of developing countries to exchange
knowledge and exp
erience and to

increas
e
the
awareness of scientists in the
field with
scientific capabilities and chances for collaboration

in the region
.
