It is undeniable that Biosciences play a pivotal role in every aspect of life. Currently, biosciences have been translated into various inter and trans-disciplinary fields which in turn lead to practical solutions to global issues occurs in the disruptive era of industrial revolutions 4.0. Indeed, today we are facing serious issues including food and feed security, energy scarcity, the healthcare issue, global warming, and others. Integration of biological field with engineering, information technology, economy, and social, sciences may serve as potential strategies to combat such challenging issues. As part of the global scientific communities, Department of Biology, IPB facilitates researcher, practitioners, students, academicians related to the field of biosciences worldwide to gather and share information, ideas, knowledge, and research results on the 3rd ICoBio, held on 8 August 2019. ICoBio will serve a fruitful atmosphere of scientific meeting that represents our best efforts in facing today`s challenging issues.
