We are pleased to announce that Cytochrome P450 Biodiversity & Biotechnology 2020, the 15th International Symposium on Cytochrome P450 Biodiversity and Biotechnology, will take place on July 11-14, 2020 in Kunming, Yunnan Province, China.
Cytochrome P450 is one of the most important enzymes in biosynthesis of diverse metabolites and involved in all aspects of life activities. Understanding cytochrome P450 is beneficial to revealing life phenomena. “Cytochrome P450 Biodiversity & Biotechnology” is an international conference, organized by scholars engaged in the research of animal, plant and microbial cytochrome P450, with strong influence and wide coverage in biochemistry, especially in the field of metabolic biology. It has been held biennially in Europe, USA, and Canada for the past 28 years. The most recent meetings were held in 2016 and 2018 in Vancouver, Canada and York, the British, respectively.
Cytochrome P450 Biodiversity & Biotechnology 2020 is sponsored by Chinese Society for Plant Biology, Institute of Botany and Kunming Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Yunnan Normal University. It is organized by the organizing committee leading by Professors Xiaoquan Qi, Danièle Werck and Rita Bernhardt. The scientific programme is grouped into (but not limited to) seven sessions: (1) P450 Structure, Mechanism and Engineering, (2) P450 Bioinformatics, Biodiversity and Evolution, (3) Microbial P450s, (4) Animal P450s, (5) Plant P450s, (6) P450 Biotechnology, Synthetic Biology and Industrial Application, and (7) P450 and Chemical Ecology, aiming to cover all aspects of P450 research relevant to all life forms.
The meetings will take place in Yun'an Huidu Hotel of Kuming. Kunming, the capital of Yunnan province, is the political, economic, communications and cultural center of southwest China. It has a wealth of biodiversity resources due to its special geographical location (an altitude of 1,900 m above sea level) and complex geographical environment (a three-dimensional climate). Because it has a very comfortable temperatures (15 - 30 ℃) all year round, Kunming is often called the "Spring City" or "City of Eternal Spring", and has won awards as the best tourist city in China.
This year P450 meeting will be coupled to the 5th International Conference on Plant Metabolism (ICPM 2020, http://www.icpm.org.cn) which is held at the same hotel from July 14th to 17th, 2020. You are also welcome to participate ICPM 2020.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Kunming!
