Departemen Biology Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences University of Jember with Universität Kassel Germany, organized International Conference On Life Science and Biotechnology (ICOLIB 2015) by title “Exploration and Conservation of Biodiversity”. The activities were held in Ballroom Hotel Aston Jember on 28 to 29 September 2015 to bring scientists from several countries including Korea, Taiwan, Germany and from Indonesia itself. A number of experts from Universität Kassel Germany also appeared as a guest speaker in this activity. ICOLIB 2015 also the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the University of Jember with Universität Kassel Germany in the field of Biotechnology.
The explosive development of the sciences and its expansion into other disciplines such as the Life Sciences field is yielding groundbreaking discoveries from novel genes and bio-products to cutting-edge nanotechnology, resulting in a transformed science landscape with profound global applications in understanding life, eradicating diseases, securing a more equitable food and water supply distribution as well as creating novel bio-industries and products.
Based on these phenomena above, the ICOLIB 2015 with theme “Exploration and Conservation of Biodiversity”, will provide an interdisciplinary platform of life sciences for researchers, academics, students, professionals, industries, andpolicy makers. This meeting also proposed to among scientists and professionalsto stay at the leading edge of recent advances in life sciences and sustainability, act as a catalyst for further research, improve international collaboration while bridging the scientific and technological differences among scientists, and foster global health security.
