This two-day, interactive meeting, will provide the opportunity to
examine the latest research into probiotics with a focus on product
development. Across two separate tracks, key topics such as
regulation, animal and aquaculture, paediatrics and women's health
will be covered.
In addition, there will be a vibrant exhibition room and senior-level
panel discussions, providing numerous opportunities to network and
Speakers include Neerja Hajela from Yakult Danone India Pvt. Ltd.,
Nagendra Shah from the University of Hong Kong, Yasuhiro Koga from
the Tokai University School of Medicine and the Japanese Society for
Probiotic Science, Roshada Hashim from Universiti Sains Islam and
Sean Hall from Medlab Clinical Ltd.

Genome sequencing has revealed an enormous biosynthetic capacity for microbial natural products, only a small fraction of which are represented in fermentation-based screens. Synthetic biology tools are being developed to translate the encoded diversity of microbial biosynthetic pathways into novel compounds and natural products. The Synthetic Biology for Natural Products conference will blend these disciplines with the goal of generating new platforms, tools and technologies to capture, manipulate and engineer natural product genes and pathways. Converting this vast untapped (meta)genomic diversity into novel chemical leads for biomedical and agricultural applications will require breakthroughs in design, scale and biologics that currently limit the field.
Key Sessions Include:
- (Meta)Genomics-Enabled Natural Product Discovery
- New Tools for Capturing, Manipulating and Activating SM Pathways
- Advances in Heterologous Expression & Screening Technologies
- Designing Genes and Circuits for Novel Products and Yield Improvement
Join us to keep up to date with the latest advances in epidemiological, diagnostic, clinical, therapeutic, taxonomic, pathogenic, immunological, genomic, and proteomic aspects of members of the order Chlamydiales, as well as Coxiella burnetii, rickettsiae, ehrlichiae and bartonellae
The 7th International Conference on Polar and Alpine Microbiology will take place in Nuuk, Greenland 8-12 September 2017.
Increasing focus on the Arctic region due to climate change and natural resources such as oil and minerals has made Greenland a hot topic recently and it is of course an excellent place to meet and discuss polar and alpine microbiology.
The theme of PAM 2017 will be: Coming in from the cold: Microbial roles in the warming cryosphere
This theme should reflect that PAM 2017 will place emphasis on novel research showcasing the roles of microbes in the rapidly changing polar and alpine environments. Greenland-related research will of course be prominent throughout the conference.
We hope you will join us for an interesting conference and look forward to welcoming you to Greenland in 2017.
