Cell Factories & biosustainability (2013)
- Technical driver for change in designing cell factories
- Genome-scale science
- Experience with cell factories: bacteria, yeast and CHO cells
- Practical implementation of cell factories
- Mini ‘debates’ on current and critical issues
About the conference:
Cellular factories are expected to play a significant role in chemical manufacturing over the coming decades as we develop sustainable societies and lifestyles. The spectrum of compounds that can be made with cellular factories ranges from commodity chemicals, on the low end of the price scale, to therapeutic molecules, on the high end. A number of important technological drivers, both experimental and computational, have made cellular factories a realistic prospect to achieve this goal.
