It is my pleasure to welcome you to Bio-X 2019 which will be held in beautiful settings at the Dead Sea, where so much Holy Land history is to be found. In past conferences we have inaugurated the setting of the Bio-X society which will encompass the multitude of Bio related disciplines into one setting where all may interact and create multidisciplinary collaborations. Together with my co-chairmen, Serge Cosnier and Chris Geddes we have once more prepared a palette of networking settings full of unforgettable activities! See you next year,
Robert S. Marks
The Bio-X conference series, now attached to the newly formed Bio-X scientific society, is the culmination of a special crop of international conferences organized by Robert S. Marks, Serge Cosnier, and Chris Geddes, whose philosophy is to incorporate serious state-of-the-art scientific lectures, hands-on workshops, together with a special emphasis for networking between scientists. The tradition is to isolate the scientists in settings conducive to collaborations, with unusual outings enabling networking incentives.
