MiCoCo: A Chemist’s Adventures in Fungal-land: Curious tales of Biosynthesis

Lecturer: Prof. Russel Cox, Institute of Organic Chemistry/ BMWZ Leibniz Universität Hannover, Hannover

Fungi produce numerous small organic molecules with complex structures and interesting and useful bio-activities. From an organic chemist’s perspective these are often synthetically challenging, and fermentation of native organisms to produce high titres or engineered analogues is problematic. Research in the Cox group focusses on understanding and exploiting biosynthetic pathways in fungi through the use of heterologous expression.

Date: May 31, 2017

Time: 7 pm

Location: Lecture Hall Erbertstraße (Großer Hörsaal)
