H2020 EU New developments in Industrial Biocatalysis demonstration workshop

We are now offering invites to attend our workshop. From our partner ChemStream Geert Deroover will present on some interesting results on modifying the surfaces of particles and pigments. REGISTER here to hear about the value of this technology ChemStream is an innovative chemical contract research company, developing customized sustainable materials and sustainable technology with…

Bio-Derived Nylon-6

ROBOX has one target for the use of Bayer-Villiger Monooxygenases to produce caprolactone. Recently a publication reports a detailed study on an alternative route from glucose. “Sustainable production of chemical intermediates for nylon manufacture: A techno-economic analysis for renewable production of caprolactone” If you want to find out more about recent demonstrations of enzyme catalysis…

European Scientists Fight to Safeguard Gene-Editing for Crops

Leading researchers at many European plant and life sciences research centres and institutes haurgently calls upon European policy makers to safeguard gene-editing technologies in plant science and agriculture. Plant breeding started about 10,000 years ago by selecton of the best seeds from crops obtained through spontaneous genetic mutations and then using crossbreeding to produce new…

Ancestral Sequence Reconstruction leads to Robust Enzymes

Ancestral Sequence Reconstruction leads to Robust Enzymes ROBOX has been highly focussed on developing commercial biocatalysts that requires robust enzymes that can withstand elevated temperatures and long incubations as well as stability to organic substrates and solvents. In an interesting approach to this problem Elizabeth Gillam and coworkers have used ancestral reconstruction of pre-Cambrian enzymes…
