International Conference on Biosciences (ICoBio) is a biennial scientific event organized by Department of Biology, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), Indonesia. Currently, we are organizing “The 2nd ICoBio ” that will be held on 8-10 August 2017 at IPB International Convention Center (IICC), Bogor. ICoBio was organized successfully for the first time on August 2015.

The current theme of the 2nd ICoBio is “from genes to ecosystems” which covers broad range of biological research. This particular theme may accommodate diverse biological-related researchers from various countries and scientific institutions to communicate their research and expertise. By joining this conference, we shall elaborate the insights on current trends in biosciences as well as foster the networking among biologists and relevant stakeholders to further accelerate our effort in understanding biological phenomena and their applications substantial for sustainable living.
It is worth nothing that, the upcoming 2nd ICoBio event genuinely highlights the important aspect of basic and applied research on biosciences. In this era, cross-disciplinary sciences, such as molecular biology, bioinformatics, bionanotechnology, and social biosciences are essential for creating a better world. These interdisciplinary sciences will not only allow us to advance in sustainable food and energy security, healthcare, and environment, but also in our social relationships.
It is a matter of great privilege for us to invite you to contribute a research paper and participate in the deliberations of the conference.
We look forward to welcome you at Bogor, the home of Bogor Agricultural University.

This conference can be participated by university students and lecturers, professionals from government research institutions, private sectors and non-government organization. Policy or decision makers in biosciences-based sectors will also benefit for attending this conference.

International Conference on Biosciences (ICoBio) 2015


Our knowledge in biology has allowed us to achieve better understanding on many biological phenomena as well as their applications or exploitation in agriculture, food safety and security, industrial, medical, and environmental conservation. However, our advances in applied biology also generate some negative implications, such as diminishing biodiversity, imbalance in food resources, evolving novel infectious agents, and the lack of understanding of non-infectious diseases or metabolic disorders. The good news is that the emerging cross-disciplinary sciences, such as molecular biology, bioinformatics, bionanotechnology, and even between biology and social biosciences will be very useful tools to help us in creating a better world.

These interdisciplinary sciences will not only allow us to advance in sustainable food and energy security, healthcare, and environment, but also in our social relationships. Our advances in biology may broaden our perspective in being a unique individual and in appreciating human biodiversity for living in peace and harmony.


To gain insights on current trends in biology researches and teaching, such as the essential of interdisciplinary approaches in understanding biology and its applications

To foster networking among biologists and relevant stakeholders to accelerate our effort in understanding biological phenomena and their applications for human welfare
