ACS Webinar - Nature’s Dirty Little Secret: The Diverted Total Syntheses of Rhizosphere Natural Products as Targeted Antibacterial Agents
Join Bill Wuest of Emory University as he discusses how natural product total synthesis is vital for the development of next-generation antibiotics and a fruitful training platform for interdisciplinary science. During this free interactive broadcast, he will focus on recent efforts concerning the rhizosphere, the area immediately surrounding the root system of plants, where organisms produce defense compounds to aid in their survival. This ACS Webinar is moderated by Cassandra Quave of the Emory University School of Medicine and co-produced with ACS MEDI.
What You Will Learn
- How to apply the concept of diverted total synthesis to antibiotic development
- Potential applications for narrow-spectrum antibiotics
- Natural product target identification using proteomic methods
