Ramnarain Ruia Autonomous College, a premier institution for higher learning in Mumbai is organising an INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PLANT BIOFACTORIES: STRATEGIES & CHALLENGES (PBSC 2019) on 19th, 20th and 21st DECEMBER 2019. The Conference is being organized in association with the SOCIETY FOR PLANT RESEARCH (VEGETOS), New Delhi. The conference has been planned as an international platform in the Indian subcontinent region to foster global exchange of innovative ideas and technologies in harnessing the bio-synthetic capabilities of green plants.
Green plants form the resource base for all life forms on this planet and their unique biology make them the most abundant primary producers on earth. Today, the pressing needs to conserve fossil fuels and to utilize natural resources sustainably, has made us look back to the plant kingdom for more viable alternatives. With advanced techniques in molecular biology and biotechnology, scientists are also exploring novel means to address issues of environment and human health. Industries are eager to imbibe technologies which are more environment friendly and use resources more sustainably. Thus, to enable exchange of ideas and experiences, an international conference can enable a global platform that would encourage scientists to share results and also attract industries who could showcase their latest technologies.
The International conference on PLANT BIOFACTORIES: STRATEGIES & CHALLENGES (PBSC – 2019) has been planned as an international platform in the Indian subcontinent region to foster global exchange of innovative ideas and technologies in harnessing the bio-synthetic capabilities of green plants. The conference is being organized by the S.P. MANDALI’S RAMNARAIN RUIA AUTONOMOUS COLLEGE, MUMBAI, in Association with SOCIETY FOR PLANT RESEARCH (VEGETOS). The deliberations at the conference will encourage interdisciplinary approach to alternative energy resources, sustainability and improvement of food resources, plant based medicines with technologies that will enable harnessing the synthetic power of green plants. This international conference would result in a confluence of scientists, industry representatives and decision makers where not only ideas will be exchanged but also new collaborations will emerge for solving pressing issues of environment, health and wellbeing which have more global implications.
