7–9 June 2023, Luxembourg
Phytofactories 2023, an international conference on Plant Molecular Farming, will take place on 7–9 June 2023 in Luxembourg and is organized by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST).
Phytofactories 2023 is centred on the exploitation of plant diversity using cell and tissue cultures and aims to cover the valorisation chain of plant resources. It will bring together experts in the production and characterization of specialized plant metabolites, as well as those applying this knowledge in dedicated pilot processes.
The topics and focuses are:
- Plant cell and tissue cultures for speciality molecules and their industrial applications: In this session of the conference, experts in plant bioprocesses will present their latest results. Aspects related to the optimized culture of undifferentiated plant cells (both in flasks and bioreactors), or organs (e.g., hairy roots), elicitation, scale-up and extracts' bioactivities will be covered.
- Plant genome editing and metabolic engineering: This session will bring together experts in the field of plant metabolic engineering, e.g., for the production of specific added-value compounds.
- Large-scale bioprocessing: This session will specifically deal with aspects related to the downstream processing (pretreatment, extraction) of plant biomass cultivated at the pilot and industrial scales.
- Germplasm preservation technologies: This topic will focus on techniques for plant in vitro propagation and cryopreservation.
