Directing Biosynthesis V

22 March 2017 09:00 - 24 March 2017 15:00, Warwick, United Kingdom


Introduction
Earlybird Registration Deadline 22 January

Natural products produced predominantly by microorganisms and plants have inspired the development of many blockbuster drugs, crop protection agents and other high value chemicals.  Biosynthetic research is strategically important commercially but also to society as a whole and will continue to help address emerging challenges in health, the environment and sustainability on a global scale.
While this multidisciplinary field is driven by genetic and associated technological advances, chemistry remains the central focus with key input from the fields of organic chemistry, enzymology, biochemistry and ecology
 
Directing Biosynthesis V will be the fifth in a successful series of meeting and will represent a significant opportunity for scientists interested in the biosynthesis of natural products to hear more about developments in the field, network and present their own work during poster sessions and talks

Themes:

  • Enzymology and Structural Biology
  • Pathway engineering
  • Natural products discovery: ­ a response to AMR
  • Biosynthesis of cell walls / targets for antimicrobials
  • Chemical ecology
