7. Danish Conference on Biotechnology and Molecular Biology

May 24 – 25, 2011
Hotel Munkebjerg, Vejle

Microbial Communities in Biotechnology, Health and Biomedicine 

It is just in the past few decades that the importance of microbial communities has been realized with numerous implications for life on Earth. New advanced methods allowing investigations of complex microbial systems have revealed an extremely high diversity of microorganisms with novel properties and complicated interactions. Since the discoveries of Louis Pasteur and Emil Christian Hansen in the nineteenth century most effort in microbiological research has been dedicated to the investigation of growth and metabolism of individual species in monocultures. In fact, modern industrial biotechnology is based upon the invaluable achievements of these efforts. However, microbiological research is moving into a new era with studies of microbial communities in industrial and environmental biotechnology and not least in relation to human health. A deeper understanding of microbial communities will allow us to cope better with the large challenges we are facing with regard to climate change, water management, renewable energy, recovery of resources, and public health.

The present conference focuses on the latest achievements in the research and exploitation of microbial communities in relation to: 

-  Evolution
-  Human health and nutrition
-  Recovery of nutrients and conversion of waste to valuable products
-  Industrial biotechnology

The conference will include a poster session covering a broad range of topics on biotechnology as well as a commercial exhibition of equipment, consumables and services to Danish biotechnology.

 The conference is organised in collaboration with Danish Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Danish Biotechnological Society (DBS) is a scientific society established in 2006 in collaboration between Danish Biotechnology Forum and The Danish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. DBS is organised as part of The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA. The purpose of DBS is to facilitate networking within the field of biotechnology in Denmark, creating links between universities, research institutions, hospitals and companies. DBS represents professionals working with biotechnology and seeks to promote and communicate important issues on biotechnology, biochemistry and molecular biology to the public. DBS organises scientific conferences and meetings on biotechnology.
