Speaker

Hui Ming Ge is a Professor at School of Life Sciences, Nanjing University. Dr. Ge studied biology in Nanjing University (School of Life Sciences) and obtained his bachelor degree in 2002 and Ph.D. degree in 2007. He did his postdoc in Nanjing University (School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering) on total synthesis of natural products, and the Scripps Research Institute (Department of Chemistry) on biosynthesis of natural products. His current research in Nanjing University focuses on the discovery and biosynthesis of complex natural products.


Abstract:

Natural products are important sources for clinical drugs and pesticides. Their complex structures and significant biological activities rely on various cyclization and oxidation modifications during biosynthesis. Our research focuses on the cyclization and oxidation of natural products of polyketide, and this lecture will illustrate these fascinating cyclization and oxidation processes in nature through several examples of natural product biosynthesis.
