Enzyme Discovery and Production Webinar from the BIOOX EU-FP7 Project

Funded by the EU as part of the Seventh Framework Programme, the project BIOOX“Developing a validated platform for the application of oxygen dependent enzymes in synthesis and transformation of alcohols”, has now entered its third year.

Now available via the project website is a webinar on discovery and production of biocatalysts, particularly highlighting the roles of (meta)genomic approaches for rapidly generating large and diverse panels of novel enzymes, rapid characterisation of novel biocatalysts, and scaled production for industrial biotechnology applications.
