The international biotech community will gather in Melbourne, Australia - one of the world’s greatest biotech hubs - for the 17th International Biotechnology Symposium and Exhibition (IBS 2016), from 24 – 27 October 2016.
IBS is organised under the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) since 1960 and is the most representative biotechnology event at the global level, at which more than 1,000 participants congregate from academia and industry, to explore the advances and frontiers of science and applied biotechnologies.
IBS intends to present and promote the relevant contribution that chemistry provides to the development of biotechnological research and industry.
