Realizing the value of plant natural products: from metabolic engineering to biorefining

16 Nov 2012 - 16 Nov 2012 - Stevenage, Herts, UK



Bookmark and Share


Plants produce a wide range of natural products with valuable activities as pharmaceuticals, nurtaceuticals, crop protection agents, food ingredients and personal care products. With a growing public interest in 'naturals' and policy  drivers to increase sustainability of chemical production, there is now a major opportunity for biotechnologists to increase the supply and diversity of phytochemicals available for industrial applications.  In this meeting these opportunities will be reviewed, along with the approaches being employed nationally to meet this demand using a combination of plant breeding, metabolic engineering and biorefining.     

This event  has CPD accreditation and will have a  discussion panel session.  

On registration you will be able to submit your questions to the panel that will be asked by the chair on the day of the event

Chair : Professor Robert Edwards, Chief Scientist,The Food and Environment Research Agency
