12th Day of Life Sciences hosts 3rd CCBIO Symposium on «Industrial Biocatalysis»
The 3rd CCBIO Symposium on Industrial Biocatalysis is held virtually and will provide a platform for scientific knowledge transfer and dialog for participants from industry and academia.
Biocatalysis has become a vibrant scientific discipline with an increasing number of industrial applications emerging in recent years. Products manufactured by enzymatic transformations are used in the food, feed, chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries and the number of compounds produced using biocatalysts is expected to increase further.
Future innovations in biocatalysis will be fueled by a close cooperation between experts from chemistry, micro- and molecular biology, biotechnology, bioinformatics and engineering. In a transdisciplinary environment, the 3rd CCBIO Symposium on Industrial Biocatalysis will provide a platform for scientific knowledge transfer and dialog for participants from industry and academia and bring together renowned researchers to discuss recent advances and future directions of the field. The symposium will cover cutting edge topics of biocatalysis, ranging from the evolution of synthetically valuable enzyme families, genetic code expansion and the design and optimization of artificial enzymes, to the development of computational approaches for enzyme engineering. In addition, the symposium will feature several successful biocatalysis examples from industry.
