On earth the oceans comprise the biggest part of the biosphere and also contain the most ancient and diverse forms of life. It is only with the tools of modern science that these biological resources can be studied in detail, and the things learned from them applied for human benefit and fundamental scientific progress. Reports have shown that the resources of the sea remain largely unexplored, and that marine organisms represent a vast untapped resource with potential benefits in many areas including: medicine, aquaculture, fisheries, industry, research, and environmental protection and restoration. For this reason we have organized WCMB-2011 to bring together scientists and industry leaders from marine biotechnology organizations to encourage the development of commercial marine biotechnology.

WCMB-2011 will take the form of keynote lectures, oral presentations, posters, exhibitions and project matchmaking. It will cover topics from recent breakthroughs in marine biotechnology, algal biotechnology, marine natural products and valuable materials, marine bioenergy and engineering, marine resources and environment bioremediation to applications of marine biotechnology.WCMB-2011 will provide a platform for marine biotechnologists to debate on the issues affecting the progress of this emerging field, and to identify the challenges and opportunities facing the development of marine biotechnology
