ICBB 2011

The International Conference on Bioscience & Biotechnology (ICBB) 2011 was successfully be held on 11-12 October 2011 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The event was organized by Department of Biology, State Islamic University Sunan Kalijaga which supported by Society for Indonesian Biodiversity, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and Universiti Teknologi Mara.

The opening remarks of ICBB 2011 were made by Muhammad Jafar Luthfi, Ph.D (Conference chair). As he said in the preface, A large proportion of the world’s biodiversity is found in tropical countries, with comprises of more than 70% of world biodiversity. Among them, many have been recognized as the important sources for food, medicine, timbers, and as material supporting for everyday life. The chemical and biological diversity have interrelationship and interdependence as a whole system. Each species, each dimension of the planet, makes its unique contribution to the good of the whole. Our survival is intimately connected to the survival of the other species of the planet.

More than 140 well-known experts, researchers, lecturers, and students have been invited and attend this conference. The high enthusiasm to this conference was in line with one of the ICBB objectives, i.e. to provide an international forum for students, researchers, academics and practicioners to share the most recent research, theory and practice. We further hope that the network built through this conference can be a good foundation for future collaboration research among ICBB 2011 participants.

The highlight of the International Conference on Bioscience & Biotechnology (ICBB) 2011 was the keynote addresses by Prof. Dr. Hildebert Wagner (Center of Pharma Research, Department of Pharmacy, University of Munich, Germany) on “Synergy Research: Approaching a New Generation of Phytopharmaceuticals“; Prof. Dr. Geoffrey A. Cordell (Department of Pharmaceutics, College of Pharmacy, University of Florida, USA) on “Natural Products: Chemical and Biological Potential of the Rain Forest”; Prof. Prof. Dr. Shukor Md Nor (School of Environment and Natural Resources, Faculty of Science and Technology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia) on “Vertebrate Biodiversity and Conservation in Peninsular Malaysia”; and Assoc.
