2nd TUBA-KAST Bilateral Symposium on “Biotechnology and Its Applications” at İstanbul will be held under the bilateral agreement between TÜBA and The Korean Academy of Science and Technology-KAST on September 20, 2017 with the hosting and contribution of Yeditepe University.
The symposium will provide a platform for researchers and decision makers in biotechnology to present their latest findings and learn more about major research advances in biotechnology, business development, strategic alliances, partnering trends, product opportunities, growth business models and strategies, licensing in the fields of pharmaceutical biotechnology, medical biotechnology, industrial biotechnology, bioprocess engineering, protein engineering, bioremediation, and plant and environmental technologies, transgenic plant and animals, and its ethical and social concerns.
TÜBA President Prof. Ahmet Cevat Acar stated that the Second Symposium, the first one held in the capital of South Korea hosted by KAST, will be held at Yeditepe University this year with the scientific coordination of TÜBA Council Member Prof. Fikrettin Şahin and the latest findings in biotechnology will be presented to researchers and decision makers in the symposium. Prof. Acar said that green, white and blue biotechnology have different contents and made a detailed statement: “Green Biotechnology is applied to agricultural processes involving the use of scientific tools and techniques such as genetic engineering, molecular markers, molecular diagnostics, vaccines, and tissue culture, to modify living organismsincluding plants, animals, and microorganisms for improving the nutritional quality, quantity and production economics. White biotechnology involves industrial processes used for sustainable manufacturing new chemicals, biomaterials and alternative energy sources. Blue biotechnology covers the marine and aquatic applications of biotechnology which used to improve the health, reproduction, development and growth of aquatic organisms, to control proliferation of noxious water-borne organisms, and develop new drugs.”
Stating that the development and use of modern biotechnology could help not only meet the rapidly growing need and demand for energy, food, healthcare and appropriate environmental management, but also increase productivity and create new jobs. However, the advancement in this field has also the potential for misuses that lead to some concerns and controversies about the ethical, legal, and social implications of biotechnology, Prof. Acar said that therefore, all possible scientific collaborations in biotechnology between South Korea and Turkey will be discussed in the 2nd KAST-TUBA Bilateral symposium.
