Welcome to MikrobiokosmosRead More
The Microbial environment is part of the National wealth and resources of every country.
Therefore, it is evident that its protection, exploration and exploitation would be of great benefit for every national economy.
MikroBioKosmos is the Hellenic National Initiative for the exploration and commercial exploitation of the microbial national resources.
History of MikroBioKosmos
In December 2007 the Ηellenic Scientific Society MikroBioKosmos (MBK) was founded in Athens, Greece, by a group of researchers led by Dr Nikos Kyrpides, Prof. Kostas Bourtzis and the late Prof. Kostas Drainas. Ever since, the Society has grown larger and is now affiliated to several Ιnternational Μicrobiological Societies, e.g. FEMS, ASM and IUMS. Major aims of MikroBioKosmos are to: a) promote research in Microbial Ecology, Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Μοlecular Microbiology, Microbial Genomics and Systems Biology, Microbial Physiology, Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, particularly of microorganisms other than human pathogens; b) facilitate the transfer of knowledge among its members and potentiate research networking; c) promote biotechnological breakthroughs and the development of innovative products of interest; and, last but not least, d) stimulate State and public awareness regarding national microbial resources, ensure their protection and conservation, and supervise their exploitation.
