From 27 November - 1 December, the 37th International Specialised Symposium on Yeasts (ISSY2023) will take place in Adelaide, Australia.

Co-chaired by Professors Vladimir Jiranek (University of Adelaide) and Sakkie Pretorius (Macquarie University), the theme for ISSY37 is Yeast Biotech 2.0: New Yeast, Knowledge and Applications. The meeting will bring together leading researchers, biotech executives, suppliers, government and early career researchers, whose activities span the spectrum of fundamental to applied investigations of yeast.

Planned themes will include: biodiversity and new yeast, yeast-derived food and beverages, yeast cell factories, yeast in plant-based foods and meat/dairy alternatives, synthetic genomes, organelles and communities, designer yeast, bioenergy, biomedicine, biosafety, and more.

The VIVALDI project is pleased to join such an international symposium with a poster presentation held by our partner the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU). The poster will showcase the VIVALDI research on the "Conversion of methanol to itaconic acid with engineered Komagataella phaffii".
