Participation - Please Post.

The second, biannual special conference on "Recent Advances in Fermentation
Technology" (RAFT II) will be held in San Diego, USA, November 14 - 18,

Microbiology (SIM) and the BIOT section of the American Chemical Society
(ACS).  Participation is limited to 300 attendees and the agenda will be
focused in three areas:

The conference advisory committee members are Dr. Arnold Demain
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Dr. Karl Sanford (Genencor
International), Dr. Michael Flickinger (University of Minnesota), Dr.

CEO, Prizm Pharmaceuticals).

1) Fermentation & Cell Culture Engineering: including medium development &
optimization, process control and optimization, equipment and
instrumentation design.

2) Strain Design & Improvement: including metabolic engineering, yield
improvement and by-product reduction.

3) Fermentation Aspects of New Product Development: including natural
products, fungal fermentations, microgravity fermentations, secondary
metabolites, flavors, fragrances, fuels and chemicals.

We are also planning a roundtable discussion on "Fermentation Process
Consistency Requirements and Performance for Biologics" which will include
