33rd International Specialized Symposium on Yeast (ISSY33) - Exploring and Engineering Yeasts for Industrial Application

Dates: 26 – 29 June 2017

Location: University College Cork, Cork, Ireland

Theme: Exploring and Engineering Yeasts for Industrial Application

The 33rd International Specialised Symposium on Yeast (ISSY33), organised under the auspices of the International Commission on Yeasts, with support from the Microbiology Society, will take place at University College Cork, Cork, Ireland.

Yeasts are unicellular fungi used in many sectors of biotechnology to make products such as beverages, foods, pharmaceuticals and chemicals. This meeting will examine the basic physiology and metabolism of industrial yeast strains. The potential to further exploit the natural biodiversity of yeasts to create select or create new strains for applications will also be considered.

Key topics:

  • Exploration of yeast biodiversity for industrially relevant traits
  • Hybrid genomes of industrial yeasts: analysis and engineering
  • Engineering novel (to yeast) product pathways
  • Cell factory product pitches
  • New tools for yeast genome engineering
  • New synthetic pathways in yeast
  • Analysing and engineering regulatory networks in yeast
  • Metabolomics and proteomics of industrial yeasts
  • Evolutionary approaches for yeast strain improvement

We look forward to seeing you there!
