First International

RiPPs Conference

24-26 April 2019, Granada, Spain

In spring 2019 (April 24-26) the First International Conference on RiPPs (Ribosomally synthesized and Post-translationally modified Peptides) will be organized by experts in the field, in the beautiful town of Granada, Spain. The interest in these compounds is steadily growing, as they show unique biosynthetic pathways and display diverse and relevant activities such as antimicrobial activity against resistant pathogens, among others. We aim to discuss a broad range of topics concerning this class of natural products. Themes include biosynthesis, engineering, synthetic biology, chemical biology, mechanisms, enzymology, genomics, evolution, structure, function, ecology and application.

We aim for up to 80 participants including 8 invited speakers; from the submitted abstracts 21 will be selected for a short talk while others will have the opportunity to present a scientific poster.

Confirmed Speakers Include: Wilfred van der Donk, Jörn Piel, Oscar Kuipers, Elke Dittmann, Sylvie Rebuffat, Qi Zhang, Colin Hill, Eric Schmidt
