543 Biocatalysis and Biosynthesis I: Techniques

Wednesday, November 19, 2014: 3:15 PM
204 (Hilton Atlanta)
The focus of this session is to reflect the emerging technique developments in biocatalysis and biosynthesis of small molecules, including fine chemicals, natural products, and biofuels. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: (1) Discovery and characterization of new biosynthetic pathways; (2) Engineered biosynthesis of new chemical entities; (3) Rational and combinatorial manipulation of biosynthetic pathways; and (4) Optimization of biosynthetic enzymes and pathways. We also encourage submissions that demonstrate emerging technologies for enzyme co-localization, immobilization, and controlling enzyme orientation. Topics that cover the metabolic engineering of primary metabolites are better suited in the metabolic engineering sections.
