Session 1: Industrial Biotechnology:

 IndustrialBiotechnology is a set of practices that uses livingcells such as bacteria, yeast, algae or components of the cells like enzymes togenerate the products of industrial importance. It is often referred to as the "Thirdwave" in biotechnology. It is one of the most favourableprocesses/method to control some of the serious issues of modern industry. Ifit is developed to its full extent it may have a larger impact on world than healthcareand agricultural biotechnology.  This session will include the recent advancesand research which entitles to use renewable raw materials and can contributeto lowering greenhouse gas emissions and stirring away from apetrochemical-based economy.

Session 2: Bioprocessing:

Bioprocessingforms the backbone of translating discoveries of life sciences into usefulindustrial product .The most renowned growth drivers in the global bioprocesstechnology market are the significant expansion in the biopharmaceuticalindustry, increasing thrust on research and development, higher demandfor vaccine,and progress in the field of technology. Innovation in new techniques will lead to bio-manufacturingindustries for a better circular bio economy. 

Session 3: Enzyme and microbial technology:

Enzymetechnology is one of the corner stones ofIndustrial Biotechnology. Rapid technological developments are now stimulatingthe chemistryand pharmaindustries to embrace enzyme technology, a trend. Microbialbiotechnology is defined as any empirical application that usesmicrobiological systems, microbial organisms or their derivatives, tomanufacture or modify products or processes for specific uses.  The development of rapid and affordablegenomics technologies and accompanying bioinformatics tools, and of highresolution analytical and imaging instruments, has provided new impulses to thefield and opened new avenues of application, one of which is micro-biomeengineering.

Session 4: Bio-based products:

IndustrialBiotechnology uses enzymes to make bio-based productslike chemicals, ingredients, detergents, materials and biofuels. Since thattime, industrial biotechnology has produced enzymes for use in our daily livesand for the manufacturingsector.

Session 5: Bio-catalysis:

Bio-catalysiscanbe explained as the use of natural products like one or more enzymes or cellsto speed up (or catalyse) chemical reactions. The success of bio-catalysisdepends on protein engineering, enzyme immobilizationImmobilizationcan play an important role in the adoption of bio-catalytic processes. Byswitching to bio-catalysis as the main technology for chemical production, itwill lead to green processing, reduces pollution and cost, and help towards bio-economy.Bio-catalysis will help in increasing the ability to use enzymes to catalysechemical reactions in industrial biotechnology.

Session 6: Biomaterials:

Biomaterialsplay an important role in medicineindustry including heart valves, stents, and grafts; artificial joints,ligaments, and tendons; hearing loss implants; dental implants; and devicesthat stimulate nerves. The recent advances of biomaterials combine medicine,biology, physics, and chemistry, and more recent fields are from tissueengineering and materialsscience. Biomaterials foundtheir application in various fields like in dental applications, surgery, anddrug delivery.

Session 7: Bioenergy and Bio-renewables:

Bioenergy and Bio-renewablesoffers a solution for the production of renewable energy from biodegradablesources, such as wastes from municipal, food, agricultural and biomass.  BioenergyResearch fills a void in the rapidly growing area of feedstock biology researchrelated to biomass, biofuels, and bioenergy. There are three main categories ofbio-renewable resources: food, bio-products, and bioenergy. The use of biomassenergy can minimize our greenhousegas emission, it’s feed stockscan also help in making profits for the agricultural industry.

Session 8: Bioreactor design and Scale-up:

The design ofthe bioreactor plays a major role in the functioning of the bioprocessand upstreamprocessing. The simple designmakes it possible to control the degree of shear uniformly within a reactor(critical to cell growth). For commercializing the product scale up of thebioreactor is very important. The success of the process hinges, to a limit, onensuring the designing aspects in bioreactor and the operational procedures.

Session 9: Bioplastics and Biopolymers:

Bio-plasticscanhelp reduce reliance on fossil fuels, support sustainability in the industryand allow manufacturers to diversify feedstock. Biopolymershowever are the distinctive classification of the group of materials underwhich bio-plastics are also included. Plastics are replaced with bio-plastics,since they pollute our environment, pose a danger to wildlife and they do notdegrade quickly. But new research findsbio-plastics are just as toxicas ordinary plastics. Bio-based and biodegradable plastic is no safer thanother plastic. This session deals with the latest works and news about thebio-plastics.

Session 10: Synthetic Biology:

 Synthetic biologyresearchers and companies around the world are harnessing the power of natureto solve problems in medicine, manufacturing and agriculture. It is the basisfor the discovery and design of biological catalysts for industrialapplication. A unique ethical concern about synthetic biology is that it mayresult in the creationof entities which fall somewhere between living things and machines.

Session 11: Regenerative Medicine And Tissue Engineering:

Here by regenerativemedicines mean the bioprocess engineering area of stem cell tissueengineering including scale-upand scale-down.In the “whole bioprocessing” aspect the complete process starting from donor orpatient biopsy all the way through by clinical insertion to the patients.

Bioprocessingfor RegenerativeMedicine is an entirely new field, which can only be partially comparedwith that of mass production of molecularmedicines. Regenerative medicine and tissue engineering are one of thefastest growing areas of research in medical industries.
