ABOUT BEST 2017
Welcome message from the BEST President
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering Society of Taiwan (BEST), I am pleased to welcome you to Dou-Liu City and the 2017 BEST Conference and International Symposium on Biotechnology and Bioengineering in National Yunlin University of Science and Technology. Dou-Liu is my home town, a traditional agricultural and well industrialized town located at the middle part of Taiwan. She is small but beautiful. Especially after raining, she turns into super beautiful and relaxing with the clear mountain view close by. We also have a well bio-cluster of food and agriculture biotechnology here. Welcome again and allow me to be your guide!
The conference is a key annual event for the Taiwanese members and students working on the biochemical engineering and applied biotechnology. Since 2015 the BEST Conference started to run as an international symposium, and the involvement of foreign participants in the BEST Conference renders it more influence and helpful for promoting international friendship and collaborations.
“Intelligent Biotechnology” is the theme for the conference, and it may offer a chance for all of the participants to share or learn some intelligent knowledge and experience. Since less and less resources are available, more and more challenges have to be faced, while we need more intelligent and innovative ideas in the research and development of biotechnology or bio-products.
I would like to show my deep appreciation to all invited speakers and oversea participants to join this 2017 BEST Conference and International Symposium on Biotechnology and Bioengineering. A warm welcome is especially extended to all of TSB and KSBB good friends who will attend the BEST Conference this time. I do hope all of you have a good time during your stay here and learn more Intelligent Bio-knowledge and get inspired from here for more intelligent ideas.
"Chance favors the prepared mind,” said Louis Pasteur, the pioneer and master of microbiology. So, let’s enjoy this conference and be prepared for the coming Intelligent Biotechnology!
President of Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering Society of Taiwan (BEST)
