Biotechnology and Plant Secondary Metabolites Production

Secondary (also known as natural) compounds derived from plants have been used as various purposes, such as, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, flavors, fragrances, pigments, dyes, cosmetics, food additives etc. Although some of these compounds are synthesized chemically but due to their complex chemical structures and complicated biosynthetic pathways, most of them are obtained from plants.  Biotechnology offers a valuable tool to produce these compounds of interest in a desired amount and an eco-friendly way. By employing biotechnological techniques, it is possible to regulate the biosynthetic pathway of plant in order to enhance/decrease the synthesis of particular compound. Despite, the advances in biotechnology techniques, there are only a few successful examples of secondary compounds production at an industrial level.

The symposium addresses the new challenges and emerging researches in the area of biotechnology and plant secondary metabolism. The focus is to highlight the various strategies to increase the quality as well as quantity of secondary compounds The event will  bring together the academia and industry in a common international platform to exchange the knowledge, experience and research innovations among researchers working in the area of Biotechnology. This symposium will provide an opportunity for scientists, researchers from academia/idustries, graduate and post-doctoral researchers as well as young researchers to explore their knowledge and face to face talk with experienced researchers.
