Aim of this project

To construct an Asian academic research hub for the chemical & synthetic biology of natural products through 3-way international collaboration on the ‘chemical & synthetic biology of natural products through Streptomyces genome mining (Japan), artificial chromosome engineering (Korea), and synthetic cell factory design (China)’.

In light of the rapid progress and growing interest in this area, three major biotechnology societies representing the USA (The Society for Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology, SIMB), Korea (The Korean Society for Microbiology and Biotechnology, KMB), and Japan (The Society for Actinomycetes Japan, SAJ) successfully co-organized a new international meeting entitled “Natural Product Discovery and Development in the Post Genomic Era” (San Diego, Jan. 2015) that was devoted to the re-emergence of natural products as a fruitful approach to the discovery and development of novel compounds to address the challenges and unmet needs in medicine, health, and food production. The meeting was very successful thanks to the many key participants including Eung-Soo Kim, who played a major organizing role as a KMB representative, and both Yasuo Ohnishi and Zixin Deng, who were invited as important speakers. To further expand this type of Asian natural product research & personal collaboration, we would like to build an Asian academic research hub for the chemical & synthetic biology of natural products through 3-way international collaboration on the ‘chemical & synthetic biology of natural products through Streptomyces genome mining (Japan), artificial chromosome engineering (Korea), and synthetic cell factory design (China).
