Overview of research activities:

Access to biocatalysts

  • Identification of new biocatalysts by screening, e.g. from strain collections
  • In silico discovery of novel enzymes
  • Cloning and functional expression in suitable microbial hosts
  • Creation of tailor-made enzymes using directed (molecular) evolution and rational protein design
  • Commercial enzymes

Methods

  • Development of High-Throughput-Systems for directed evolution
  • Development & application of bioinformatic tools
  • Cloning, expression, purification, characterization of enzymes
  • Chemical syntheses
  • Chiral analysis (e.g. via gas chromatography or HPLC)
  • Process development (e.g. continuous enzymatic synthesis)

Enzymes studied

  • Transaminases
  • Baeyer-Villiger Monooxygenases
  • Esterases/Lipases
  • Oxidases
  • Others

Applications

  • Synthesis of optically pure compounds, e.g. for pharmaceutical applications
  • Modification of fats and oils, e.g. structured triglycerides
  • Synthesis of detergents, e.g. sugar esters
