You have missed the
"Transam 2.0 - Chiral Amines Through (Bio)Catalysis" conference
March 04 – 06, 2015, Institute of Biochemistry, Greifswald University, Greifswald, Germany
We are grateful to all participants for coming to Greifswald:
Organized with the help of the Euro Fed Lipid Society.
A continuation of the highly successful "1st international symposium on transaminase biocatalysis" held in Stockholm in 2013 (Website).
Program (can be downloaded here as pdf-file)
- To bring together researchers active in the area of enzymatic and chemical synthesis of chiral amines
- To provide a platform to exchange recent achievements from basic research to applied biocatalysis

The closest airports with frequent national and international flights are Berlin-Tegel (TXL) or Berlin-Schoenefeld (SXF). Alternatively, Hamburg (HAM) can be used. From both cities Greifswald can be reached by train. Travel time from Berlin main station is about 2.5-3 hrs, from Hamburg main station about 3-4.5 hrs. See the website of Deutsche Bahn for details. Note that travellers should exit at Greifswald station (not Greifswald-Süd!).
