Biocatalytic Cascades using Renewables
in Graz / Austria for 40 hours a week
The project deals with the design and development of biocatalytic cascades for the valorisation of renewables. Enzymes from literature and databases will be tested first for the single reactions steps. If required, enzymes will be improved to fit the requirements of the desired reaction conditions by engineering based on structural information as far as available. Optimization of the reaction conditions of the cascade is part of the project.
