CBMNet and BIOCATNET: Import and Export of Small Molecules for Biocatalysis

Waldorf Astoria, Edinburgh, UK.

Biochemists and microbiologists have long seen biocatalysis as an area with great promise for chemical synthesis, but industrial applications have been modest. However, significant challenges occur when substrate and product cannot be easily imported and exported from the cell. This event brings together academic scientists with diverse interests in the import and export of small molecules, alongside industrial scientists who are interested in improving the robustness of whole-cell biocatalysts.

Participants will have the opportunity to give a 5 minute flash presentation.

REGISTER NOW – Places are limited to 70. This event is free to attend and accommodation is also free.

This event is FREE to attend for CBMNet and BIOCATNET members.
