759 Advances in Biocatalysis and Biosynthesis

Friday, November 18, 2016: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Continental 7 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
This session focuses on the development of new techniques in biocatalysis and biosynthesis of small molecules, including fine chemicals and natural products. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: (1) Discovery, characterization, and engineering of enzyme reactions and biosynthetic pathways; (2) Rational and combinatorial manipulation of biosynthetic pathways; and (3) Development of activity screening methods and assays. Topics that cover the metabolic engineering of primary metabolites are better suited in the metabolic engineering sections.
