2nd Synthetic Biology for Natural Products Conference

The Interface of (Meta)Genomics, Synthetic Biology and Natural Product Discovery


02 Jun 2019 - 05 Jun 2019

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Chairs

Synopsis

Genome sequencing has revealed an enormous untapped biosynthetic capacity for microbial natural products, only a small fraction of which are represented in fermentation-based screens. Synthetic biology tools are being developed to translate the encoded diversity of microbial biosynthetic pathways into novel compounds and natural products. The Synthetic Biology of Natural Products conference will blend these disciplines with the goal of generating new platforms, tools and technologies to capture, manipulate and engineer natural product genes and pathways. Converting this vast untapped (meta)genomic diversity into novel chemical leads for biomedical and agricultural applications will require breakthroughs in design, scale and biologics that currently limit the field.

Key Sessions

  • (Meta)Genomics-Enabled Natural Product Discovery
  • New Tools for Capturing, Manipulating and Activating Biosynthesis Pathways
  • Heterologous Expression and Synthetic Biology Technologies
  • Trends in the Commercialization of Natural Products

Student Offer

Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity for students! Register an academic at the rate of $1,755 and bring a student for only $700. Unfortunately, Postdocs are not eligible for this offer. Both registration packages include; accommodation for the 02, 03, 04 June 2019 (on a shared basis for students) and a 24hour all-inclusive food and beverage package for the conference period.

Target Audience

Synthetic biology scientists and companies looking to learn the latest engineering and synthetic biology technologies for converting small molecule, natural product pathways into novel compounds. Topics discussed during the conference will span the experimental spectrum from molecular biology, microbiology, drug discovery, chemistry and pharmacology, to antibiosis activities against cancer, viral and microbial pathogens, as well as biocontrol and biostimulants.

Educational Need

A new generation of tools and technologies is needed to convert the vast biodiversity found in natural product pathways into bioactive compounds and treatments. The Synthetic Biology of Natural Products conference will bring together a broad spectrum of research scientists and corporate managers interested in learning about the latest developments in this new field.

Location

Originally a bustling mining town known as the ‘Las Peñas’ in the 19th century, Puerto Vallarta is framed by the stunning mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental of Jalisco and the immense Mexican Pacific. This fascinating destination with red roofs, golden sunsets, cobbled streets and beautiful beaches possesses everything that makes for an incredible place to visit.

Puerto Vallarta’s art offering is amazing, from crafts found in the flea market to the fleeting creations made by artists with the sand on the beach. Its art galleries, boardwalk, calm Banderas Bay waters - loved by scuba diving enthusiasts and bustling nightlife bare some of the contrasts that Vallarta holds.

There are many activities you can enjoy during your fee time such as visiting the El Salado estuary, going on horseback up the Quimixto waterfall or taking a tour of Banderas Bay. You may also like to explore the Jardín Botánico de Vallarta where you will find orchids, bromeliads, agaves, wild palms and fern grottos along the paths of this gorgeous nature park.
