At the event, 200+ participants gave ca. 30 oral talks, and presented ca. 60 posters. Compared to MSB Symbioza 2016, the 2017 edition was addressed to younger audience – mainly undergraduate and master students. To come over the communication barriers and make the contact more straightforward, MSB Symbioza 2017 was focused more locally with Polish returning as the official language of the talks. The plenary lectures focused mostly on practical aspects of biotech so that they could signpost future career development, as well as show how biotechnology can change the lives not only of a narrow group of professionals but of the whole society.
