8th Conference on Physiology of Yeasts and Filamentous Fungi (PYFF8)

From 5-8 June, the Microbial Biotechnology Division of the EFB will hold the 8th Conference on Physiology of Yeasts and Filamentous Fungi (PYFF8), which will be hosted by University College Cork (UCC) in Cork, Ireland.

The conference, taking place every three years, gathers scientists from industry and academia interested in the fundamental physiology and biotechnological applications of yeast and filamentous fungi to share the latest results, develop new collaborations and reinvigorate networks. Themes include evolution and adaptation, stress response and resilience, metabolism and systems biology, while technologies such as functional genomics, metabolic engineering, genome editing, and synthetic biology are commonly applied to both yeast and filamentous fungi.

During the conference, a delegation from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, partner of the VIVALDI consortium, will present the VIVALDI project via the poster presentation “Engineering the Synthetic β-Alanine Pathway in Pichia Pastoris for Conversion of Methanol into 3-Hydroxypropionic Acid”.
