New Biotechnological Production Systems

08 March 2011 DECHEMA-Haus, Frankfurt am Main


The increasing demand for resource-efficient and climate-benign production processes and upcoming technologies are driving the development of biotechnological production processes. The workshop will provide insights into the potential of novel bioproduction systems and approaches which may deserve a second closer look. Internationally renowned scientists and representatives from both academia and industry will discuss the needs and challenges for future research and development.

James R. Swartz, Stanford University (Cell-free technologies: past, present and future) and Roland Wohlgemuth, Sigma- Aldrich, (New bioproduction system for metabolites and intermediates) will deliver the keynotes.

Looking forward to seeing you in Frankfurt,

An-Ping Zeng
