3.Gordon Research Conference — Chloroplast Biotechnology: Pathway Engineering 2015
 Dates 18 Jan 2015 → 23 Jan 2015
[ID=648505] Go to top of page
 LocationVentura, United States
 Abstract The 2015 Gordon Research Conference on Chloroplast Biotechnology will present cutting-edge research by an international group of scientists interested in experimental approaches to probe chloroplast structure and function and to exploit plastome engineering for biotechnological applications. The meeting is particularly timely in bringing together a growing community of scientists combining fundamental studies on chloroplast molecular biology with applications in agriculture, industrial biotechnology and healthcare. Covered at the meeting will be microalgae as well as land plants. The topics will include organelle genome evolution, revealing structural diversity that may guide the design of synthetic organelle genomes. Speakers will provide an update on all aspects of chloroplast gene expression, including the transcription machinery, mRNA processing, mRNA editing and mRNA degradation, mRNA translation and protein processing, assembly and turnover. Emphasis will be on the role of small regulatory RNAs and the function of nuclear-encoded, organelle-targeted RNA-binding proteins, the functions of which are largely unknown. Applications will include engineering plastid-encoded genes to improve plant productivity and boost biofuel production. Introduction of novel biosynthetic pathways in the plastid genome through engineering of polycistronic operons will be part of the program. Production of vaccines, industrial enzymes, and human therapeutic proteins in chloroplasts will also be discussed. Plastid engineering is routine in tobacco, tomato, potato, lettuce, cabbage and soybean, but thus far has not been successful in many other species, including monocots. Technical advances needed to extend to new crops and development of new regulated expression systems will be part of the program. Plastids, best known as chloroplasts when specialized for photosynthesis, are plant cellular organelles with a relatively small genome (ptDNA; 120-230-kb in size) that is present in up to thousands of copies per cell. Genetically stable transplastomic plants are obtained by modification of a plastid genome by homologous recombination, followed by replication of the transformed ptDNA and gradual dilution of wild type genome copies under selection in cultured cells, and plant regeneration. Generally recognized benefits of plastid engineering are: the potential for high-level protein expression from plastid transgenes; the potential for expression of multiple genes in operons; and transgene containment in crops in which only the maternal parent inherits plastids, thereby preventing transgene flow via pollen. Plastid transformation today is applied to problems in four general areas: (1) expression of recombinant proteins for industrial and pharmaceutical applications; (2) engineering the plastid genome to improve plant productivity; (3) engineering novel pathways into chloroplasts; (4) engineering novel agronomic traits into chloroplasts for gene stacking and transgene containment.

 Dates 28 Jun 2015 → 03 Jul 2015
[ID=655563] Go to top of page
 LocationNewry, United States
 Abstract "Synthetic biology" is an emerging field that is very rapidly gaining currency within the scientific community and society at large. Although in itself not an entirely new concept and having been referred in literature for the first time as early as 1912, the advancements in molecular biology, high-throughput "omics" analysis and on computer and engineering sciences, only now begin to enable a serious, systematic approach to the development and forward engineering of biological circuits and cellular capabilities that may be ultimately translated into processes or products. The core of this concept is that, by drawing on knowledge developed in biology, chemistry, robotics and adapting engineering design and production principles stemming from Information Technologies, it is possible now to set off the creation of artificial (i.e. "synthetic") and hybrid systems using biological engineering design principles with unprecedented power and efficiency. The pursuit of synthetic biology is both the design and fabrication of biological components and systems that do not exist in the natural world as well as the re-design and fabrication of already existing biological systems.

 Dates 19 Jul 2015 → 24 Jul 2015
[ID=655360] Go to top of page
 LocationWaterville Valley, United States
 Abstract For millennia, humans have tapped the products of plant metabolism for food, feed, fiber, fuel and medicines. As the world’s population approaches 9 billion by 2050, these necessities will be required in unprecedented amounts, requiring production strategies that are sustainable and reduce carbon emissions to the atmosphere. Plants show remarkable metabolic plasticity and diversity, but meeting the above challenges will also require engineering plants to produce new products designed to meet the needs of an ever growing population. The importance of improving production of plant products is poorly appreciated by the public at large, but biology is now poised to facilitate major advances in the design of plants across the whole spectrum of potential uses. In this context, the 2015 Plant Metabolic Engineering GRC will (i) highlight new advances in understanding plant metabolism, its flexibility and its underlying control mechanisms, (ii) discuss new technologies that allow for engineering of complex pathways, targeted gene replacements and non-transgenic approaches to genetic improvement, and (iii) present real world examples where plant metabolic engineering is leading to new products that are reaching the marketplace. These latter presentations will provide the audience with an up to date assessment of both the scientific and regulatory challenges of moving metabolic engineering from concept to reality. Short talks will also be selected from poster abstracts submitted as part of the registration process. Junior scientists, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students will present their work in poster sessions and interact with global leaders in the field of plant metabolic engineering from both academia and industry. The collegial atmosphere of this conference, with extended discussion sessions and informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provide a unique forum for networking and interactions across disciplines.

31.Bioflavour 2015 - International Conference on Flavor and Fragrance Biotechnology
 Dates 09 Sep 2015 → 11 Sep 2015
[ID=682995] Go to top of page
 LocationFrankfurt, Germany
 Abstract Over the last decades we’ve seen a remarkable increase in knowledge on the biology and biochemistry of flavour and fragrance (F&F) formation in nature. With the advent of modern biotechnology and the use of -omics technologies, functional characterisation of genes, proteins and metabolites involved in F&F biosynthesis has become more and more sophisticated. The application of these technologies boosts our understanding of the genetic, biochemical and cellular fundamentals of the natural synthesis of the desired compounds. This information can be harnessed for improving aroma generation during food and beverage fermentation processes or in bioprocesses targeting specific F&F products. For the latter, great advances in systems biology, metabolic and enzyme engineering now enable access to develop microbial cell factories for the production of economically attractive F&F compounds. Complementary to the biological aspects, process engineering is equally important to improve existing or to establish completely new industrial bioprocesses. Finally, the recognised shift towards a bioeconomy and the push in the chemical industry to develop green and sustainable processes confirm the strategic importance of biotechnology. In this context biotechnology is recognised as providing the tools and expertise to establish sustainable production routes starting from renewable resources rather than relying on fossil material.
