Welcome

Thailand is located at the center of the Indochinese peninsula in the Southeast Asia with a total area of approximately 513,000 km2. It is the 20th most-populous country in the world with around 67 million people. In addition, it is rich in plant biodiversity and ranked the 13th in the world. Plant Biotechnology, as well as Plant Genetic resources is the major concern for universities, academic institutes, governmental organizations, and the public. Therefore the Department of Plant Science, Faculty of Science, Mahidol University is organizing the IX International Scientific and Practical Conference on Biotechnology as an Instrument for Plant Biodiversity Conservation (Biotech 2020) in collaborations with the ISHS.
The Department of Plant Science is honoured to organize this event in Bangkok, Thailand during December 14-16, 2020. Many researchers of the department participated in the previous events of the ISHS. We organized the First International Symposium on Tropical and Subtropical Ornamentals (TSO 2016) is collaborations with the ISHS in Krabi, Thailand during March 7-9, 2016. The TSO 2016 was successful with 136 participants from 15 countries. Last year we organized the Third International Symposium on Plant Cryopreservation (CryoSymp 2018) in collaborations with the ISHS in Bangkok during March 26-28, 2018. The CryoSymp 2018 was also very successful with 114 participants from 25 countries. This year we organize the First International Symposium on Botanical gardens and Landscapes (BGL 2019) in collaborations with the ISHS in Bangkok during December 2-4, 2019.
The Biotech 2020 will help to encourage scientists, students, and private sectors to widen their knowledge and learn recent advanced technology in Plant Biotechnology from world-renowned scientists. This will help to develop plant biotechnology and plant genetic resources conservation not only in Thailand, but also throughout the world.
We look forward to meeting you in Bangkok, Thailand in December 2020 !!!
