Talk Title — “Assembly Line Biosynthesis of Polyketide Antibiotics”

Abstract: Many complex natural products are synthesized by multi-enzyme systems that operate as assembly lines. Their apparently modular architecture has opened the door to biosynthetic engineering of new natural products by rationally manipulating the DNA encoding these megasynthases. Understanding the structures and mechanisms of these assembly lines represents a challenging and exciting frontier in multifunctional catalysis.
