Spain Polyphenols Applications is postponed to 2021

Dear Colleagues,


In response to the critical situation and evolution of the COVID-19, the Organizing Committee of Polyphenols Applications 2020 decided to postpone the congress to next year.


The new date is September 23-24, 2021.
We will announce the details as soon as the planning of the 2021 meeting has been completed.


We will keep your registration, you don’t need to do anything.  In case of cancellation, the Organizing Committee will fully refund you.
Thank you for your understanding of this exceptional situation.


We will keep our optimism and wish rapidly to overcome these moments.


All our warm regards,


Prof. Dr. Andreas Schieber

Development of microbial production platforms for plant polyphenols

Mattheos Koffas Polyphenols 2018Prof. Mattheos Koffas from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA will talk about the "Development of microbial production platforms for plant polyphenols" during the 12th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Bonn Polyphenols 2018 which will be held at the University of Bonn, Germany in September 25-28, 2018.

According to Prof. Mattheos Koffas: "In the past 15 years, we have applied metabolic engineering towards the development of robust and efficient microbial production platforms for the production of plant polyphenols. We will present a number of examples where single hosts have been optimized for the production of various flavonoids starting from intermediates such as phenylpropanoic acids and flavanones, using stoichiometric-based modeling and metabolic pathway balancing. We will then present examples of using co-cultures involving such individual strains for the de novo production optimization of various flavonoids from glucose."
