FEMS Yeast Research Webinar on Yeast Lipids


The webinar presents established and earlier career speakers who will cover diverse aspects of yeast lipid metabolism. It will address the exciting field of the role of phospholipids in organelle function and communication. Then we switch focus to applications of lipids that can be produced in yeast cells. Metabolic engineering has created the opportunities develop yeast cell factories to produce specialty lipids for diverse food, cosmetics, biofuels and biotechnology. The combination of state-of-the-art presentations from world leaders, exciting research presentations from up-and-coming researchers, and a discussion forum will deliver an engrossing session.
