COST presymposium at the GA meeting in Münster

The chair of Technical Biochemistry organized together with the workgroup of Prof. Warzecha (TU Darmstadt) at the 61st Congress and Annual Meeting of the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Products Research (GA) in Münster the COST presymposium "Challenges and limitations in metabolic pathway engineering of secondary natural products".

Heribert Warzecha The chair of Technical Biochemistry organized together with the workgroup of Prof. Warzecha (TU Darmstadt) at the 61st Congress and Annual Meeting of the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research (GA) in Münster the COST presymposium "Challenges and limitations in metabolic pathway engineering of secondary natural products". Invited speakers were Prof. Rob Schuurink (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Dr. Michal Jasinski (Rolish Academy of Science, Poznan, Poland), Dr. Diego Orzáez (University of Valencia, Spain) and Dr. Kirsi Okasman-Caldentey, VTT, Finland who talked about current research areas in medicinal plant biotechnology. The main foucs was on genetic engineering of plants for optimizing terpenoid production, transport proteins and mechanisms of regulation of intra-cellular transport processes, and synthetic biology for constrution of metabolic processes.

More than 60 participants joined the presymposium and extensively discussed all lectures and exchanged scientific results in round table discusssions.

Members of the chair presented their current scientific results in a poster and two lectures. Sayed Hussein Farag made a poster "LCMS/MS spectral evidence of the occurrence of cannabinoids in Cannabis sativa cell cultures", Nizar Happyana gave a talk about "Monitoring metabolites production and cannabinoids analysis in medicinal Cannabis trichomes during flowering period by 1H NMR-based metabolomics" and Parijat Kusari talked about "Biochemical fingerprinting of endophytes harbored in Radula marginata that confer plant fitness benefits". Both talks were followed with great interest and discussed extensively.
