Being lytic is the feature of a bacteriophage leading to the destruction (lysis) of the host cell upon infection.
Transformation is the natural ability of some species of bacteria to take up free DNA from their surroundings through their cell wall. In genetic engineering, transformation denotes a process which is often used to introduce recombinant plasmids in E. coli, for example. This is a modified version of natural transformation.
The total mass of living matter (animals, plants or micro-organisms) within a given unit of environmental area.
Meeting the Grand Societal Challenges and successfully implementing a sustainable bioeconomy requires the contribution of various stakeholders and research disciplines. Basic, applied and industry-oriented research including the natural, agricultural, engineering and economic sciences have to be bundled into a systemic integrative approach. At the 3rd International BioSC Symposium, experts from academia and industry discuss recent results and new developments for a sustainable bioeconomy from different points of view.
External guests and BioSC members present their interdisciplinary projects in the following sessions and complementary poster presentations.
Session I: Socioeconomic Perspectives within a Sustainable Bioeconomy Socioeconomic analysis of bioeconomical developments (raw materials, processes and products) linked to markets, politics and society, as well as strategies or concepts for a successful implementation of an economically, ecologically and socially sustainable bioeconomy.
Session II: Innovations for Plant Production and Resource Management Interdisciplinary, sustainable and visionary concepts, that allow for resource-preserving and environmental-friendly enhancement of plant performance, adaptation of quality to the respective utilization pathway and minimization of yield and post-harvest losses.
Session III: Green Value Chains ‐ Processes and Products from Biomass New value chain concepts, promising products and solutions for the processing of biogenic raw materials, modular (bio-) transformations, downstream processing and integrated biorefinery concepts for the holistic and sustainable utilization of biomass.
The Call for Posters is open! Abstracts can be submitted until 15th September 2018. The best three posters will be awarded poster prices!
