Go East! TRADITOM at the TERPNET conference

The 13th international meeting on Biosynthesis, Function and Synthetic Biology of Isoprenoids (TERPNET 2017) will take place from July 16-20, 2017. The meeting venue will be the city of Dalian, which is a major seaport located in the Northeast of China.

TERPNET is an international affiliation of scientists working on all aspects of terpenes and isoprenoids. The research includes investigations spanning from biosynthetic mechanisms to assessing the biological activities of these chemicals and their industrial applications.

After being launched in 1992, TERPNET soon became an international conference focused on terpenoids. With the experience of hosting the 2013 edition of the event, TRADITOM partner Prof. Angelos Kanellis (AUTH) is again member of the executive committee.

To maximize synergies, the TERPNET 2017 will be held jointly with the 4th International Conference on Plant Metabolism and the 6th International Meeting on Plant Cell Wall. As there is significant overlap between the subjects of the three meetings, this provides a unique chance to learn about recent progress in study of metabolites beyond terpenes and isoprenoids, with the potential for making important connections to these related fields.
