With immense pleasure we invite you to attend the 3rd International South Asian Biotechnology Conference 2017 to be held at Kathmandu, Nepal from March 16-18, 2017. Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of Nepal (MoST), Nepal Biotechnology Association (NBA), Central Department of Biotechnology, Tribhuvan University (CDBT), are going to organize this conference in collaboration with South Asian University (SAU), New Delhi, India. Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) accepted to be coorganizer of this conference.

The theme of the conference is “REGIONAL CO-OPERATION FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY”. We believe that the conference will generate opportunities of exchanging concepts and views among the Government authorities, faculties, and students of the SAARC region. SABC 2017, in line with 1st SABC 2015 held in Delhi, India and the 2nd SABC 2016 held in Dhaka Bangladesh, will bring together researchers of SAARC countries for sharing their research activities, academic achievements and related information. It is an opportunity to promote cooperation, coordination and collaborations amongst SAARC countries. Biotechnology is one of the prioritized area of Ministry of Science and technology. Nepal Biotechnology Association (NBA), an apex body of professionals working in the area of biotechnology and life science has been contributing towards development of biotechnology in Nepal for over two decades. Tribhuvan University, established 1959 has made tremendous contribution towards academic development of science, management and humanities in Nepal.

The paper presented in the conference and discussion with scientist and policy makers will support the aim of MoST to implement Biotechnology Policy of Government of Nepal. The outcome of the conference will suggest the effective use of biotechnology in agriculture, health, environment and industry sectors. From the experience of other countries biotechnology has a great promise in the economic development. So this conference will provide guideline for possible use of Biotechnology in the food security and raise the economic status of peoples of the region including Nepal.
