Our partner DTU that is leading the work package on engineering the scale-up of biooxidations presented ROBOX reults at the leading international Gordon Research Seminar. These types of stability and oxygen supply studies are vital to enable biooxidation to be performed at an industrial scale.
Our ROBOX partner TUG are organizing their popular Pichia lab course (4 days crash course on protein expression from gene design to bioreactor cultivation) at TUG in Graz from Sept 2nd to 5th.

The new techniques of precise gene-editing technologies (such as CRISPR–Cas9) being developed for treatment of genetic disease in humans, genetically altered animals and new crops has has been ruled that it counts as as genetic engineering.
CRISPR plants now subject to tough GM laws in European Union
Gene editing is GM, says European Court
The ROBOX partner at ACIB continue their use of scientific material to engage with young scientists from a very early age!!
Well done Margit and Claudia and thanks for your efforts – much appreciated
As ROBOX has been developing approaches to produce monomers and polymers from materials derived from plant sources we have highlighted several of these advances in the past. ACIB ROBOX Enzymes PolyHydroxyAlkanoates Stefaan de Wildeman Another approach to reducing impacts of plastics in the environment is the oxo-degradable plastics which have been discussed at length recently…
SUSTAINABLE PLASTICS ROBOX has been developing novel polymers that can be made to produce new bioplastics that can replace polythene in many applications. Biopolymers – lots of advantages but hardly ever used In order to protect mankind and nature and to prevent further damage to the environment, new biopolymers from renewable resources such as plant…
Standard registration for the 7th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress 2018 will close on 16 July.
After 16 July, the price will increase. So now is the best time to register.
ROBOX Publishes two papers on the use of BVMO enzymes to make monomers for use in practical polymer applications
Our partner from Maastricht have published two papers that demonstrate the use of ROBOX technology to produce monomeric lactones that can be used to make polyesters with properties that can be tuned by enzyme selectivity Application of a thermostable Baeyer–Villigermonooxygenase for the synthesis of branched polyester precursors The publication in Organic Process Research and Development…
ACIB News Item: On June 25th, first year primary school kids visited ACIB to learn about the basics of Biotechnology. In four exercises, 23 children and 2 teachers experienced different laboratory techniques: streaking microorganisms, visualizing them by microscopy, extracting colors from fruits and vegetables and measuring pH with the help of red cabbage extract. A…
