Applied Biocatalysis: This 3rd master class will provide detailed information on the basic principles of enzymes, enzyme immobilization and matters relevant to their industrial use.
Enzymes are used in various industrial processes ranging from the ton scale conversion of starch to the gram scale synthesis of chemical compounds. The enzymes used in these industrial processes need to be robust, cheap and work under varying conditions. This master class will provide detailed information on the basic principles of enzymes, enzyme immobilization and matters relevant to their industrial use. In addition, emerging fields such as use of enzymes in combination with chemical catalysts, enzyme nanoreactors and the use of enzymes in the lab on a chip will be discussed. Also issues relevant to industrial practice such as intellectual property will be presented.
The course is at graduate level. The course will be valuable for those who are working with enzymes in academia and industry, or are considering to do so.
5-7 April, Groningen, The Netherlands
