This conference will use a cross-disciplinary approach to explore the present and future status of natural products and their prospects for continued commercialization. It will focus on a comprehensive view of recent developments impacting the discovery and production of natural products.
Topics, such as high throughput screening, genome shuffling, defined media, novel instrumentation, bioreactor operation, bioinformatics, etc., will be discussed within the context of key cultures.
Developments will be explored as they impact traditional culture classes: actinomyces, non-yeast fungal, plants, & single cell bacteria/yeast.
Special sessions will be devoted to atypical sources of cultures and specific novel cultures. New perspectives, highlighting successful approaches for one culture class that might be applied to another, may be gained.
