  • Dear Reader,
    The 2nd symposium on "Biocatalysis in Lipid Modification", organised by the Euro Fed Lipid division "Biotechnology/ Enzyme Technology" in cooperation with SFEL and DGF will be held Sept. 19 - 21, 2012 at the Institute of Biochemistry at Greifswald University, (Greifswald, Germany).

    The conference will bring together researchers from academia and industry to provide a platform to exchange recent achievements in the field covering basic research as well as aspects related to process development / up-scaling using isolated enzymes and whole cell systems.

    The sessions will also cover the use of hydrolases in lipid modification (e.g., lipases, phospholipases), protein engineering of enzymes and microorganisms producing lipids. A range of well-reputated invited international speakers will present their latest research results.

    To learn more about the conference and register please explore the website at http://www.chemie.uni-greifswald.de/~biotech/lipids2012.html We very much look forward to an exciting conference.

    UNESCO World Heritage

    The historic center of Cracow is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Read what the Unesco has to say:

    "The historic centre of Cracow, the former capital of Poland, is situated at the foot of the Royal Wawel Castle. The 13th-century merchants' town has Europe's largest market square and numerous historical houses, palaces and churches with their magnificent interiors. Further evidence of the town's fascinating history is provided by the remnants of the 14th-century fortifications and the medieval site of Kazimierz with its ancient synagogues in the southern part of town, Jagellonian University and the Gothic cathedral where the kings of Poland were buried."

    European Journal: Impact Factor 2011

    Impact Factor 2011 announced
    The Impact Factor of EJLST has increased from 1.487 to 1.733 in 2011.

    Focus on STEROLS: Special issue FREE online now!
    Cholesterol versus other sterols: How do they compare as physiological regulators of cholesterol homeostasis?

    Cholesteryl esters and ACAT

    Oxysterol-binding proteins - emerging roles in cell regulation

    Cholesterol photosensitized oxidation in muscle foods

    Steryl glycosides and acylated steryl glycosides in plant foods reflect unique sterol patterns

    Call for cover illustrations
    The cover image for the June Special issue on STEROLS was provided by Dr. Anne Galea and Dr. Andrew Brown from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. The image represents the complexity of cellular (chole)sterol trafficking and metabolism as a maze and alludes to the ancient Greek legend of Theseus using a ball of thread to find his way out of King Minos' labyrinth.

    We invite you to contribute images for consideration as the front Journal cover. A brief description and acknowledgement will be published in the Journal. To submit the material and inquire about the conditions please contact the Editor by email at ejlst@wiley.com .
