" NEW OPPORTUNITIES IN PLANT, ANIMAL AND INDUSTRIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY"
BIOTECHNOLOGY HAVANA'95, DEDICATED TO THE APPLICATION OF
BIOTECHNOLOGY TO PLANT ANIMAL AND INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTIONS
Headquartes: Center of Genetic Engineering and
Biotechnology, CIGB, Havana, Cuba.
November 12 to 17, 1995.
Organizers: Center of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology.
Co-sponsors: UNESCO, FAO (UNTIL NOW)
Biotechnology Havana'95: At the doors of the 21st Century, an
adequate space for evaluating the tendencies, alternatives and
applications of this science in both, the field of animal and plant
production and the industrial sector.
SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM (proposal)
Three parallel Events will take place based on the following
I) BIOTECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO ANIMAL PRODUCTION AND HEALTH
-- Biotechnology applied to animal improvement
-- Vaccines and drugs for veterinary uses
-- Diagnosis applied to animal production
-- Use of transgenic animals as "biofactories"
-- Use of transgenic animals as biomodels
-- Embriology and Biology of Development
-- Biotechnology applied to acquaculture
II) BIOTECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO PLANT PRODUCTION
-- Plant tissue culture applied to agriculture and to
the production of useful substances in plant cells
-- Biofertilizers and biopesticides
-- Diagnosis of diseases in plants
-- Molecular markers and their application to agriculture
-- Genetic engineering applied to agriculture:
Genetic transformation. Resistance to plagues and
diseases. Quality improvement of agriculture products.
III) BIOTECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO INDUSTRY
-- Fermentation, scaling, recovering and purification of
proteins from genetically modified organisms
-- Bioreactors. Kinetics of transformation and calculation
of industrial bioreactors
-- Gene expression in industrial microorganisms
-- Bioconversion and biodegradation
-- Immovilization of cells and enzymes
-- Production of industrial enzymes
In each Event there will be Poster sessions, short
Oral Communications, Symposia and Round Tables with the
participation of invited lecturers.
THE ROUND TABLES WILL COVER THE FOLLOWING SUBJECTS:
--"Patents and regulations for the application
of biotechnology to agriculture production"
-- "The commerce of biotechnologic products"
-- "Opportunities of biotechnology as a source of economic
and social development"
Delegates: 325.0 USD (Private Sector)
