Industrial Biocatalysis for the Working Chemist

Organised by:

SCI's Fine Chemicals Group

SCI, London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
The last 30 years has seen tremendous advances in the area of synthetic biology. Certain transformations are now routinely used on commercial scale. Indeed some of the biggest industrial processes across a range of industries are based on synthetic biology. Despite this success and the huge progress in the simplification of the technology, it still faces problems in being taken up and used in the normal laboratory. This meeting will bring speakers from a range of industries who have commercially exploited this technology. During the meeting we will endeavour to understand this somewhat paradoxical situation and endeavour to describe future prospects for this area of science.
