ROBOX BIO-OXIDATION ENGINEERING WORKSHOP

ROBOX BIO-OXIDATION ENGINEERING WORKSHOP We recently completed our ROBOX bio-oxidation engineering workshop at our partner DTU site near Copenhagen. The workshop delivered over three days addressed all aspects of scaling-up biocatalysed oxidations and gave many insights into the larger scale reactions and how to address issues. Many aspects are not necessarily intuitive and clear understanding…

Biotechnology finds new antibiotic

Dr Sean Brady’s team at New York’s Rockefeller University has been busy unearthing antibiotics using a gene sequencing technique to analyse more than 1,000 soil samples taken from across the US and and they discovered malacidins. Their discovery represents the first discovery of a new class of antibiotic since the discovery of teixobactin in 2015…

7th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress

The 7th EuCheMS Chemistry conference, 26-30 August 2018 is in Liverpool, UK. The conference has excellent keynote speakers, and there is still time for submitting abstracts for oral and poster presentations (deadline February 19). See https://www.euchems2018.org/ Although the conference covers all aspects of catalysis there is a strong biocatalysis lineup. Biological catalysis Convenor: Dick Janssen…
