The potential of enzymes for the resource-saving production of fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, aromas and many other chemicals is not nearly exhausted yet. The DFI covers all essential steps in the development of enzyme-based processes. This includes the expansion of substrate and product spectra, the optimization of enzyme expression, the evaluation of alternative solvents (especially deep eutectic solvents), enzyme engineering and in particular the development of novel reactor concepts (electro-enzymatic and photo-enzymatic syntheses). Most of the research focusses on industrially relevant hydroxylations with peroxygenases and P450 monooxygenases.

Unfortunately, we have to inform you that we have decided to cancel the Summer School Biotransformations 2020 in view of the current developments regarding the spread of coronavirus. To secure the health of our guests and employees is our top priority and we are taking it very seriously. We very much regret the cancellation and will postpone the Summer School Biotransformations to 9 - 12 August 2021.
