To date, ISBAB has published several books and has issued Journal “Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology (BAB)” (Elsevier).



The 9th International Symposium on Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology (9th ISBAB) will be held in the Spa Resort in Piešťany, Slovak Republic from October 13th to October 16th, 2013. In addition, the workshop of the Pannonian Plant Biotechnology Association (PPBA) will join the 9th ISBAB. This International Symposium will bring together key researchers and professionals from academia, government and industry to share research results, insights and perspectives in various facets of biocatalysis and biotechnology. The 9th ISBAB as well as PPBA workshop is an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues and decision-makers in the biotechnology sector.
