Directing Biosynthesis VI

12 - 14 April 2021, Edinburgh, United Kingdom


Introduction
The Directing Biosynthesis conference has been a key meeting in the biosynthetic research calendar for over a decade and is set to be a highlight in 2021 for the community of researchers interested in the biosynthesis of natural products.

Organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the 2021 conference will host some of the leading researchers from around the world. It promises to be a great forum for researchers working in biosynthesis to network with and build strong collaborations within their community and related disciplines.

Networking and discussion are an important part of Directing Biosynthesis and the main poster sessions have been timed for the middle of the day to give ample and priority time for this key aspect.

Themes

Directing Biosynthesis VI will cover all aspects of microbial, plant and marine natural products research, including:
  • Natural product discovery
  • Genetics, enzymology and structural biology of natural product biosynthesis
  • Biosynthetic engineering and synthetic biology
  • Biological function and mechanism of action
  • Industrial applications of natural products and biosynthetic enzymes

Attendance

The Royal Society of Chemistry is keen to encourage and enable as many people as possible to attend our events, to benefit from the networking opportunities and the chance to hear talks from leaders in the field. If you would like to discuss accessibility, or have childcare, caring responsibilities or other care needs, please contact us to discuss your requirements so that we can enable your attendance.
