The potential of Indonesia’s natural resources as a producer of protein is still poorly optimized. Including the potential for new proteins produced by a new reaction mechanism. So far, the development of the field of protein engineering in Indonesia is lacking considering the many limitations and challenges still faced by researchers in this field. Limitations owned facilities as well as less than optimal utilization of the areas of protein engineering support such as biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, bioinformatics and computational factors that inhibit the development of the field of protein in Indonesia. One important strategy to overcome the limitations is to increase collaboration between several disciplines at national or international level at the institute / institutes / research group that focuses on research-based protein. Therefore, Indonesian Protein Society (IPS) as a professional organization that represents lecturers, researchers and observers in the field of protein will work closely with the Center for Development of Advanced Sciences and Technology (CDAST), Jember University and the Project Implementation Unit of the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) conducted an international seminar and congress with the aim to disseminate and exchange information about the study results, the strategy and implementation of programs related to the field of protein.
- Collecting information from various parties so that the IPS members can exchange insights on the development of research and technology related to the field of protein.
- Merge perceptions about the development of the field of protein and its application nationally and internationally to contribute ideas to the government and people of Indonesia.
Scope of science or technology in the field of protein biochemistry, bioinformatic protein, protein expression, and protein purification as well as various engineering science/engineering related proteins.
IPS seminar and workshop will be followed by about 300 participants (Oral or Poster) from all parts of Indonesia which consists of:
• Researches/ Lectures
• Students (under graduate, and graduate student)
• Observer competent in the field of Food, Agriculture, Medicine, Pharmacy, Health and various engineering science / engineering related to proteins or life-sciences.
