Biocatalytic Cascades - Challenges and Opportunities, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
Tuesday, October 20, 2020

In this free webinar, attendees will learn about the design, development and scale-up of biocatalytic cascades, the challenges encountered, and lessons learned from past examples and emerging trends and novel design tools for the future.

TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Biocatalytic cascades involving two or more enzymes hold the promise to facilitate complex, multi-step chemical transformation in efficient and sustainable ways. In vivo cascades are assembled by metabolic engineering and have a well-established track-record from the bench to large-scale fermentation. In contrast, in vitro cascades have recently breached proof-of-concept in the test tube by successfully demonstrating their scalability for industrial production of high-value compounds, such as the anti-retroviral drug islatravir, and the low-calorie rare sugar tagatose.

In this free webinar, participants will gain insight into the strengths and weaknesses of each approach by comparing/contrasting past accomplishments and challenges, and explore future opportunities and design strategies for advanced chemical processes driven by biocatalytic reaction cascades. The panel of speakers consists of experts in the field of synthetic biology, each an architect and practitioner of biocatalytic cascades.

Join Jeff Moore, Principal Scientist, Merck & Co, Nick Turner, Professor of Chemical Biology, University of Manchester, Dan Wichelecki, Co-Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, Bonumose LLC and Michelle Chang, Professor, Departments of Chemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, UC Berkeley and moderated by Stefan Lutz, Senior Vice President, Research , Codexis in a live webinar on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at 10am EDT (2pm GMT/UK).
