31st VHYC Yeast Conference

April 16-17, 2018 in Leuven, KU Leuven/”Convent van Chièvres”

“Yeast as a cell factory”

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, dear VH members,

please feel invited to participate in the 31st VHYC Yeast Conference which will take place on April 16-17, 2018 in Leuven, Belgium. Conference venue will be the “Convent van Chièvres” on the campus of the KU Leuven.

Today’s insights provided by system biology let us understand the internal processes of the yeast cell better than ever before. We can look at the yeast cell as a “cellular factory”. The vast diversity of metabolic pathways contains a huge potential yet to retrieve, in order to provide new biotechnological applications of yeast.

We are inviting applied scientists to present a lecture or poster to our conference audience. Please contact us  and check out our guidelines for lecturers.

The conference program comprises

  • Yeast markets, quality management and analytics
  • Applied research transfer to yeast platform innovations
  • Industrial yeast production technology and up-/downstream process units
  • Networking and convivial evening

You can find the preliminary program here.

You can find the abstracts for the presentations here.
