According to the conjecture of Bondal, the derived category of coherent sheaves on any smooth projective variety can be embedded as a semiorthogonal component into the derived category of a Fano variety of higher dimension. I will explain how this embedding can be constructed for general curves of arbitrary genus. This is a joint work with Anton Fonarev.
