MegaSyn, a Hesse-wide research initiative, funded by the Hessen State Ministry of Higher Education, Research and the Arts, which focuses on the understanding of megasynthases in structure and function, and controlling megasynthases for directed product synthesis. The MegaSyn research program includes 12 groups from 5 different institutions.
The major aim of the symposium is to highlight the latest, cutting-edge discoveries in the field of megasynthases (PKSs and NRPSs). Topics include structures and mechanisms of megasynthases, identification of novel megasynthases and megasynthase-encoding biosynthetic gene clusters, theoretical and computational studies of megasynthases in biocatalysis, as well as control and design of megasynthases. The symposium is planned for about 100 participants and meant as a focused platform for intensive and insightful discussions. The talks will be 20 to 30 minutes with an additional discussion of 10 minutes. We will provide you with more details soon. The program will also feature a poster session.
The conference is held in the town of Bad Nauheim which is approximately 35 kilometres (22 miles) north of Frankfurt, on the east edge of the Taunus mountain range. It is a world-famous resort, noted for its salt springs, which are used to treat heart and nerve diseases. A Nauheim or "effervescent" bath, named after Bad Nauheim, is a type of spa bath through which carbon dioxide is bubbled.
