Abstract

BioMicroWorld2009 Conference provides a multi-disciplinary forum bringing together those involved in microbiology from both applied and research communities to present current science and also to discuss and synthesize research priorities and directions for the future. It was the 3rd international conference on environmental, industrial and applied biology. The conference brought together more than 600 researches from about 54 countries involved in microbiology, from both applied and research communities, to identify new approaches and research opportunities in applied microbiology presenting works which linked microbiology with research areas usually related with other scientific and engineering disciplines, as well as to consolidate international collaborative efforts and communicate current research priorities and progress in the field. Biomicro world 2009 conference ended this meeting by concluded that the use of microbes to reduce pollutants and industrial wastes and to change towards a less resource consuming society is being given considerable importance nowadays. New applications of beneficial microorganisms, working for the conservation of soil fertility, the control of plagues and diseases, and the improvement of agricultural productive processes and food industry, are required more and more in the mainframe of an environmental friendly agriculture and society. And science and technology emerging from microbiology research can help meet these challenges.
