Developing stable heterogeneous enzymes for fine chemical production

The advantages of gene synthesis for rapid, low-cost enzyme optimization and delivery

Date & Time

February 16th, 2021 | 8 am PDT (5pm CET)

Webinar Description

A sustainable future calls for innovative ways of producing the everyday materials that we take for granted (e.g. plastics, nylons, rubbers), as well as completely new molecules and substances.

One route to this is through the use of non-polluting synthetic biology processes. However, engineering multi-step enzymatic reactions to manufacture these materials remains challenging.

Join this webinar to hear Matthew Thompson, Director of Engineering at EnginZyme, discuss his experiences and provide best practice advice on utilizing synthetic biology for enzyme optimization and fine chemical production.

In this webinar you will:
  • Discover how EnginZyme’s alternative synthetic biology approach eliminates the complexities of engineering living cells.
  • Hear how optimized, highly stable enzymes immobilized on EnginZyme’s patented supports can be applied in continuous flow reactors to deliver unprecedented productivity.
  • Understand how combining state-of-the-art in silico enzyme design, Twist DNA synthesis, and high-throughput screening is enabling the development of the next generation of enzyme catalysts.
