Hosted by C1net (BBSRC-NIBB), this FREE, two-day conference will bring together academic and industrial partners to identify and address key challenges in the study of those organisms able to grow on C1 compounds and commercially exploit them as platforms for chemical manufacture. The programme will include talks from invited speakers from academia and industry, as well as from selected submitted abstracts and will showcase presentations from C1net POC grant winners. This event will include the launch of the 2016 Proof-of-Concept call (£200K available annually, £150K of which will be awarded following this conference) and will give plenty of opportunity for networking.
