Microbial diversity can be transformed into “biodiamond” (valuable biological resources) with proper tools such as biotechnology, bioinformatics, and advances in molecular biology. Exposure to the fast development in these studies would allow us to better understanding and utilization of microbes, in the field of bioenergy, management of greenhouse gasses, isolation of beneficial microbes (probiotics) for human, animal, and plant health, ecosystem sustainability in agriculture, animal, husbandry and aquaculture; as well as control and treatment of emerging diseases.

This conference aims to provide a platform for international microbiologists, biotechnologists, and bioinformaticians, policy makers, and private sectors to interact and exchange the latest ideas and techniques in microbiology and biotechnology for exploration of largely untapped microbial resources, especially with respect to Asia. IMBC 2008 will also include special sessions that focus on Microbe-Macrobe interactions, Microbial utilization for bioenergy and mitigation of global climate changes, Bioinformatics, and Trends in microbial diagnostics.

In addition, there will be a workshop that focus on how the rapid developments in the fields of genomics and bioinformatics to for metagenomics analysis. These sessions will provide a better appreciation of microbial communities and its impact on our health, and sustainable food production.
