Directing Biosynthesis VI

27 - 29 June 2022, Edinburgh, United Kingdom


Introduction

This will be a hybrid event, allowing participation both in person and online. 


Welcome

You are warmly invited to join us in Edinburgh, or online, in June 2022. 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 2022 for the community of researchers interested in the biosynthesis of natural products.

Organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the 2022 conference will host some of the leading researchers from around the world.

The conference promises to be a great forum for established and early-career scientists, post-graduate students and industrial researchers to network with each other and build strong collaborations for the future. Networking and discussion are an important part of Directing Biosynthesis and the main poster sessions will be timed to give ample and priority time for this key aspect.

On behalf of the organising committee, I look forward to welcoming you in Edinburgh, or online.
