Biotechnology Innovation Competition

About the Competition

Biotechnology is one of the new and most important research areas of the world for the 21st century. This discipline, which is of interest to a wide spectrum of people from basic sciences such as physics, chemistry, mathematics to engineering, covers the technological practices of the biological systems. 
The TEKNOFEST Biotechnology Innovation Competition will be organized into two separate categories: the Project Category and Idea Category.

Teams are expected to prepare original projects in biotechnology and present their theory in the idea category.  However, in the project category, teams are expected to transform their work in biotechnology area into a prototype product.
Subject of the Competition
- Medical Biotechnology (developing vaccines, drugs, adjuvants, implants, other medical treatment methods etc.)
- Animal Biotechnology (agricultural production, reproduction biology, transgenic organisms, veterinary health, biological control etc.)
- Microbial and Industrial Biotechnology (water treatment systems, process systems, enzyme synthesis etc.)
- Plant Biotechnology (plant production, plant diseases, pharmacognosy, GMO tools)
- Biomedical Engineering (development of medical device and part, device based diagnostic systems, clothing-protective equipment)
- Systems Biology (Artificial intelligence, artificial neural networks, bioinformatics processes)

Eligible Participant Education Levels for the Competition
