Directing Biosynthesis V

22 – 24 March 2017, University of Warwick

royal_society_of_chemistry-svgNatural 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 provides 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. Sessions will include: pathway engineering, enzymology and structural biology, biosynthesis of cell walls/targets for antimicrobials, natural products discovery – a response to AMR, and chemical ecology. Oral abstract deadline 9th October.
