#519 - Advances in Biocatalysis I (15C04)
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.
