Taiwan is surrounded by ocean and conserving tremendous diversity of marine organisms and resources. Professor Jen-Leih Wu, the Distinguished Research Fellow of the Institute of Cellular and Organismic Biology (ICOB), Academia Sinica, with fifty other scholars and scientists founded the Taiwan Marine Biotechnology Society (TMBS) for the purpose of representing Taiwanese developments and achievements in this field and presents to the international community. The inaugural meeting was held at the ICOB on 9th December 2012, thereby formally establishing TMBS, according to the approval of 台內社字 1010403480 of the Ministry of the Interior, R. O. C.. Professor J. L. Wu was elected as the founding President of TMBS. The 10th Asia-Pacific Marine Biotechnology Conference is organized by TMBS and will be held in Taipei, Taiwan on 4 th May 2014.
Principle goal: Promoting the advancement of marine biotechnology and its related inter-disciplinary science and technology in Taiwan and international collaboration.Main Missions:
- Promote the development of marine technology.
- Promote human resource development for marine technology.

■ We welcome you to join us for the 10th Asia-Pacific Marine Biotechnology Conference (APMBC 2014) from 4th-8th May 2014.<
The oceans cover almost 72% of the Earth's surface and account for over 90% of our total water resources. Considerable advances have been in the field of marine biotechnology over the past decade, but significant challenges regarding our marine resources continue to lie ahead of us.
The APMBC has been, and continues to be, a major contributor to developments in the marine sciences. The 10th APMBC will bring together scientific leaders from all over the world, as well as young scientists and newcomers to the field of marine biotechnology. This meeting will focus on current trends in the fields of aquacultural biotechnology; marine genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics; marine biotechnology (animals, plants, and microorganisms); marine resources for bio-energy; and aquatic models for research into human disease. We hope that all participants will find this meeting to be an inspiring and informative multidisciplinary experience.
We invite you to attend the conference and submit abstracts on your recent research for presentation in the workshops or as posters. Outstanding scholars will be invited to present the plenary and keynote lectures for each session. Join us to exchange ideas and new approaches with prestigious world experts in this exciting field. APMBC 2014 will be held in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. Taipei has many attractions, including some of the friendliest people in the world, fascinating temples, world-class museums, fantastic food, 24-hour bookshops and convenience stores, and renowned night markets. In addition, Taipei’s Mass Rapid Transit system (Metro) is one of the best in Asia, making traveling around the city a breeze. We look forward to welcoming you to Taipei!
