Multidisciplinary partners, one goal: sustainable biosources of plant natural products

The DISCO consortium seeks to create a framework that can act as a generic pipeline from discovery to industrial valorisation, using the very latest enabling technologies, to deliver sustainable biosources of plant derived products. DISCO aims to eliminate future detrimental chemical refining by developing “green factories”, and therefore reduce environmental impact.

In order to achieve this ambitious goal, DISCO brings together a multidisciplinary project consortium of leading academic experts from plant genetics, molecular biology and metabolic engineering as well as industrial partners from 15 European partner institutions.
