BSC: Workshop on Computational Enzyme Bioprospecting and Engineering
In this theoretical and hands-on course organized by FuturEnzyme and OxiPro, our members have learned how to take advantage of the potential that computational tools have in the discovery and development of disruptive enzymes. This collaborative workshop between the projects from the Cluster Enzymes for Greener Products has also provided a perfect space for meeting colleagues.
UDUS: Discover biotechnology your everyday life /An expedition to novel enzymes
UDUS FuturEnzyme fellows Rebecka Molitor and Stephan Thies were invited together with their colleague Sonja Kubicki to host three days of the Easter holiday academy “Biotechnology” organized by the Science College Haus Overbach. Together with them, the high school students discovered biotech products in their everyday life, observed in lab experiments different enzymes and biosurfactants at work in their household detergents and joined in their minds a research cruise to find novel enzymes in the sediments of the North Atlantic Ocean.
Bangor «New enzymes and biomolecules from extremophiles and metagenomes»
This Centre for Environmental Biotechnology (CEB) Event and Workshop (in person and on line) was held at Bangor University. Professor Peter Golyshin (Bangor) opened the event, followed by Professors Michail Yakimov (CNR) and Manuel Ferrer Martínez (CSIC). At this event assisted CEB researchers, representatives from Academia, Industry and the Funder (WEFO).
BSC: “Barcelona International Youth Science Challenge (BIYSC)”
This two-week residential program is thought for young people (16-18 years old) from all over the world who are passionate about science and technology, annually held in Barcelona. Its goals are to inspire young scientists, to connect them with scientific leaders, and to empower them to pursue their research passions and the future challenges. In this context our BSC colleagues Ana Robles and Rubén Muñoz took in 4 students who learned how enzymes are engineered.
