The 60th Annual Conference of Association of Microbiologists of India (AMI-2019) and International Symposium on “Microbial Technologies in Sustainable Development of Energy, Environment, Agriculture and Health” to be held from November 15 – 18, 2019 at the Central University of Haryana, Mahendergarh, Haryana, India.
The conference is aimed at providing a common forum to discuss, deliberate and formulate recommendations about future thrust areas of research on various aspects related to the theme for sustainable development for human welfare. The world is facing major challenges in the areas of energy, environment, agriculture and health. More specifically, these problems are related to energy security due to increasing prices of crude oil and depletion of fossil reserves, environmental pollution as well as global climate change due to over-dependency upon non-renewable energy and fuels, food safety and agricultural productivity, and emerging and re-emerging microbial infections, development of antimicrobial drug resistance, infection management and providing affordable health solutions. Microbes are ubiquitous organisms having great metabolic capabilities and diverse potentials. Therefore, microbial technologies and processes are envisaged to provide potential solutions to the global challenges related to energy, environment, agriculture, and health.
