#263 - Advances in Biocatalysis (15C17)
The focus of this session is to reflect the latest advances in biocatalysis and protein engineering for biocatalysis applications. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: (1) Biocatalyst development via protein modification, immobilization, and genetic engineering; (2) Biocatalytic reaction engineering, such as reaction kinetics and nonaqueous biocatalysis; (3) Multienzyme systems and cofactor regeneration; (4) Enzymatic bioprocessing for chemical production, biodegradation, biochemical separation/purification, fuel processing, etc.; (5) Other areas where biocatalysis plays an essential role, such as studies of energy generation systems, biosensors, and artificial cells.
