We are looking forward to host the 3rd International Workshop for early career scientists on Genome Mining for Natural Products, which will take place from 12.-14. September at DTU Biosustain. 30 participants from 8 different countries will get two days of intensive training using the state of the art bioinformatics tools antiSMASH and NORINE and will have the opportunity to directly interact with the developers of the software.
Scientists working in the iimena-project just published a review article on the potential of genome-scale metabolic reconstructions for optimizing antibiotics biosynthesis in actinomycetes. The article, which was published in the "Biotechnolgy J." can be downloaded here or requested from the authors.
