Engineered metabolic pathways for the microbial synthesis of plant natural products

Conference Dates

July 14-18, 2019


The structural and chemical diversity of plant natural products (PNPs) offers an enormous chemical space from which molecules with beneficial characteristics can be discovered and produced. To date, thousands of PNPs have been exploited for human benefit with applications ranging from drugs and nutraceuticals to industrial chemicals. However, agricultural and geographic variations and extraction of the desired compound(s) poses a significant challenge for cost-effective production due to the high cost associated with downstream processing and purification.
