ICBE Asia 2020 - 10th International Conference on Biomolecular Engineering

January 7-9, 2020
Add to Calendar

ICBE Asia 2020 brings together researchers to advance the understanding and application of molecular biology, biophysical chemistry, metabolic engineering, cellular and tissue engineering, biomaterials and synthetic biology.

Call for Abstracts will open in April for the following topics:

  • Protein and Peptide Engineering. This session will focus on new tools and platforms developed to enable engineering of proteins and peptides. Technologies could include, but are not limited to, those for rational or evolutionary design or synthesis, and functional screening.

  • Biomolecular Engineering and Self-assembly. This session welcomes advances in biomolecular design rules and engineering tools across various length scales to achieve supermolecular structures, leading to for applications in therapeutics, biocatalysis for high-value chemicals and bioremediation.

  • Biomolecular Analytics and Characterizations. This session will showcase advances in analytical tools that enable investigations at molecular level and its implications on the bulk properties which are relevant for translation into industrial scales.
