1st International Conference on Oil Bodies

Wageningen University
 NL (Netherlands)
2018-October-15, 18:45 - 2018-October-16, 19:45

"Oils in plants are organized in natural micron-sized droplets, called oil bodies or oleosomes. Oils, in the form of triacylglycerides comprise their core, which is surrounded by a unique set of proteins embedded in a dense phospholipid monolayer. The membrane, which is designed through evolution to protect plant oils during seed storage, equips oil bodies with high physicochemical stability. Oil Bodies can replace manufactured oil droplets in applications, like foods, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. The aim of this conference is to discuss how the fundamental knowledge on the properties of oil bodies can be used to efficiently obtain and use them in real products. Abstracts are welcome from multidisciplinary areas; from biotechnology, to soft matter and technology."
