BIT's 1st Annual Congress of Marine Biotechnology (WCMB-2011), successfully held in Dalian World Expo Center on April 25-30, 2011. Totally, there were nearly 350 participants from more than 30 countries and areas have attended the wcmb-2011.
As the keynote speakers, Mr. Gabriel de Scheemaker, Director, Former CEO of Cellana Group, The Netherlands; Dr. Bryan Willson, Professor, Colorado State University, USA; Dr. Gitelson J.I., Academicion, Institute of Biophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Siberian Branch; Institute of Fundamental Biology and Biotechnology, Siberian Federal University, Russia; Dr. Graham Shimmield, Executive Director, Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, USA and Dr. Michiaki Yamashita, Section Chief, National Research Institute of Fisheries Science; Professor, University of Tokyo, Japan made excellent presentations and warmly discussed with the audiences at keynote forum.
23 sessions covered 6 fields including Breaking R & D in Marine Biotechnology, Algal Biotechnology and Phycology, Marine Natural Products and Valuable Materials, Marine Resources and Environment Bioremediation, Marine Bioenergy and Engineering and Biomedical Applications of Marine Biotechnology and so on. With the mission to initiate a sustainable platform for exchanging up-to-the-minute upstream and downstream achievements, industrial needs and research opportunities of industrial biotechnology fields in Asia Pacific Rim, participants from academic, industrial professionals and key-decision makers delivered the new achievement on their research, together discussed and analyzed the development of Enzymes and Biocatalysis. The conference has promoted the communication of colleagues and collaboration of partners from the upstream to the downstream of Enzymes and Biocatalysis.
Depending on the warmly support and good suggestions from all of the participants, we are confident in organizing wcmb-2012 which would be better and more successful than wcmb-2011.

Introduction of WCMB-2011
On earth the oceans comprise the biggest part of the biosphere and also contain the most ancient and diverse forms of life. It is only with the tools of modern science that these biological resources can be studied in detail, and the things learned from them applied for human benefit and fundamental scientific progress. Reports have shown that the resources of the sea remain largely unexplored, and that marine organisms represent a vast untapped resource with potential benefits in many areas including: medicine, aquaculture, fisheries, industry, research, and environmental protection and restoration. For this reason we have organized WCMB-2011 to bring together scientists and industry leaders from marine biotechnology organizations to encourage the development of commercial marine biotechnology.
Highlights of the Conference
Over 200 scientific and technological presentations from scientists, executives and decision makers on the latest developments in marine biotechnology
Presentation of 100 posters and 30 expositions of new products and technologies
Opportunity for round table networks to further business and market developments
Optional tour to famous cities in China before, during or after the conference
