Session 14: Natural products in plants
Tuesday, July 26, 2016: 8:00 AM-11:30 AM
Bayside A, 4th Fl (Sheraton New Orleans)
Kristy Hawkins - Antheia, Inc.
Advances in synthetic biology are enabling the microbial production of plant natural products from complex multi-step pathways. High-value molecules such as Taxol and opiates are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry, and microbial production offers numerous advantages over plant-sourced material. This session will focus on metabolic engineering efforts towards industrial production of plant natural products including isoprenoids, polyketides, and alkaloids.
8:00 AM
