Call for Abstracts and Papers

Advanced molecular biology research is still lacking in most developing countries (including Nigeria). The 2016 International Conference on Biosciences Research (ICBR) is designed to spur scientists in to research in that field. The Conference also aims at developing collaborative research between scientists in the developing and developed countries, which will lead to development of expertise. Papers are invited from all areas of applications of molecular biology research including microbiology (medical, environmental, food, industrial), forensics, biochemistry, biotechnology, bioengineering, parasitology and entomology, zoology, botany, agriculture, etc.
