The symposium intends to be a hub for genomics-related research in Central Asia, where participants can learn, network, and engage to empower new research using genomic tools in the region. The focus of this symposium is the use of genomic and bioinformatic tools in research on different disciplines, ranging from human disease, microbiology, ecology, plant genetics, diagnostics, among others. The breath of disciplines and research approaches that will be presented across sessions aims to spark new ideas to develop in other fields by learning from other research programs and the networking instances. We will strive to keep attendees connected after the event, to keep them posted about funding new opportunities and continue interacting in a private forum. This empowers and supports a stronger network in Central Asia to use cutting-edge techniques to increase the impact of the research in the region. This event is part of a UniCEN (Central Asia University Partnership Program) project for the partnership between the University of California-Davis, USA, and the National University of Uzbekistan. The award was granted by the American Councils for International Education, with support from the United States of America Department of State and the US embassy in Tashkent.
The International Conference on Microbiology ICMBB2021
The International Conference on Microbiology (ICMBB2021) will take place virtually from 16-17 September 2021. This Conference is organized by the Institute of Microbiology under the Academic Sciences of Uzbekistan and Microbiological Society of Uzbekistan, in collaboration with the American Society of Microbiology, Asian PGPR Society, and Society for Environmental Sustainability. The Conference aims to provide a platform where academics and practitioners from cross-disciplinary fields from education, research organizations, and business can come together and collaborate. The theme of the Conference "Microorganisms for Sustainable Environment and Health" highlights the importance of microbes in addressing emerging issues in environmental, agricultural, industrial, food, medical, and various fields of microbiology. It also considers the interactions between microbes, humans, and the environment. The ICMBB2021 will showcase various recent topics in Microbiology by distinguished keynote and plenary speakers and selected oral speakers and will provide the platform to enhance knowledge, ideas, and innovations.
