We are looking forward to extracting natural substances with the students and taking a closer look at the fascinating world of secondary metabolism. This year, Christina Albrecht is leading the practical and is passing the baton to Nina Stadler.
At the end of the course, looking at a new natural substance should not be a book with seven seals. One will see the connection to primary metabolism, one will know the key steps for scaffolding and one will see which decorations were added later. Presumably, however, one will simply succumb to the elegance of biosynthesis and want more.
