LAST CALL FOR ORAL ABSTRACTS – DEADLINE THIS FRIDAY 11TH MAY 2012
Directing Biosynthesis III (DBIII), 19 – 21 September 2012, University of Nottingham, UK
Please don’t miss this last opportunity to submit an oral abstract now to be part of a high profile conference featuring contributions from the most active groups in the UK, Europe, the USA and Japan working in this rapidly developing area.
This meeting builds on the two previous extremely successful conferences in a subject area which remains highly topical. As significant opportunities exist for engineering biosynthetic pathways in bacteria, fungi and plants for the directed biosynthesis of new natural products with new and beneficial properties. We expect the programme this year to generate a high profile event that you will not want to miss.
