100 overseas guests are due to participate in the conference.
The second Israeli-French conference on biotechnology and nano-technology will open tomorrow at Ben Gurion University of the Negev. The first conference took place in Grenoble, France. 100 overseas guests are due to participate in the conference, which will deal with a variety of biotechnology and nano-technology applications. These include micro-biosensors, which are likely to be useful in the struggle against bio-terrorism, and biochip proteins, which are likely to facilitate simultaneous diagnosis of multiple diseases.
Discussions will focus on the use of these applications in daily life. Prof. Robert Marks from the biotechnology engineering department at Ben Gurion University and Dr. Serge Cosnier of the Laboratory of Organic Electrochemistry at Joseph Fourier University, Grenoble will chair the discussions.
