Charlotte Beck - PhD student at DTU Biosustain Center for Biosustainability, participated at the CeMiSt Conference on Microbial Secondary Metabolites in Microbiomes from 16th – 18th of June 2019 in Elsinore, Denmark. She presented a poster with tittle: “Improved Tools for Engineering Streptomyces” with contributions from Yaojun Tong, Sheila Ingemann Jensen, Günther Muth and Tilmann Weber.
Today at MEDINA premises in Granada Spain, we had the second annual scientific project meeting with all the partners from the IIMENA project funded by a Challenge Grant of the Novo Nordisk Foundation. The meeting allowed the partners to present their latest update on the results from the project as well as the next steps and plans for the years to come.
Charlotte Beck - PhD student at DTU Biosustain Center for Biosustainability, participated at the Copenhagen Bioscience Conference on Natural Products - Discovery, Biosynthesis and Application from 5th – 9th of May 2019 in Hillerød, Denmark. She presented a poster with tittle: “A new modular plasmid vector system for engineering Streptomyces” with contributions from her colleagues Yaojun Tong, Sheila Ingemann Jensen, Günther Muth and Tilmann Weber.
Version 5 of the second metabolite tool #antiSMASH has been redesigned and extended. The new UI and greatly reduced runtimes make it possible to deliver annotations for bacterial genomes within a few minutes. Furthermore detection rules for clusters encoding #biosynthesis of #acylaminoacids, #betalactones, #RiPPs, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, C-nucleosides, PPY-like ketones and lipolanthines and a direct link to the antiSMASH database . The paper describing the updates has just been published in Nucleic Acids Research antiSMASH 5.0: updates to the secondary metabolite genome mining pipeline
