BACHBERRY project presented at the International PSE symposium

The EU-funded BACHBERRY project will be presented during the International PSE symposium that will take place in Ghent, Belgium, from 21 to 24 November 2016.

21 November 2016 - 24 November 2016
Ghent, Belgium

BACHBERRY project coordinator Prof. Jochen Forster will present the BACHBERRY project during the seventh plenary session of the symposium (Day 4), ‘EU consortia on plants and human health’.

The project, which began in November 2013 and will end in October 2016, has been developing a portfolio of sustainable methodologies to mine the potential of the untapped biodiversity of the bioactive phenolic compounds in an extensive collection of berry species.

The PSE symposium aims to provide a forum to present the latest developments in the fields of functional genomics for plant metabolism, metabolic engineering in plants, synthetic biology for plant-derived chemicals, and challenges faced in plant omics and biotechnology.
