Selecting for selective enzymes: Engineering P450s to produce chiral alcohols

Hydroxylation is the insertion of an oxygen atom into a C-H bond, to give chemicals with a C-O-H linkage (commonly known as alcohols). The process of hydroxylation is one difficult for chemists to achieve due to the

Biocatalysts for hydrogen fuel cell: Biology’s unique way to prevent breakdown by oxygen

Hydrogen could fuel the future! Together with oxygen, hydrogen can be converted to electricity with only water as an exhaust product. The conversion from hydrogen to electricity is done in fuel cells, which require a platinum catalyst.

Yarrowia lipolytica: how a yeast becomes a workhorse for biotechnology

Yarrowia lipolytica is a yeast species belonging to the Ascomycota fungi phylum (like the well-known baker’s and brewer’s yeasts, both from Saccharomyces cerevisiae species). This innocuous yeast can be found in a large range of ecosystems (soils,

A platform for measuring carbon and nitrogen levels of metabolism-related genes in durum wheat

Multiple lines of evidence confirm that as a result of human activities the greenhouse gas emissions are rising more rapidly than predicted and, consequently, the world is warming more quickly. Global climate change threatens for food security

Mummification of cells: how dry is dry?

Human cells, the fundamental building blocks of tissues and organs, are often used to replace damaged body parts as well as for the production of certain medicines. However, the long term storage and transport of these cells

A wearable UV-LED medical device for automatic disinfection of stethoscope membrane

The medical literature has demonstrated the importance of healthcare-associated infections ( HAI ), which are an huge worldwide problem because of health complications, mortality ( EU + USA 140.000 death/year ), length of hospitalization and costs for

New role of microbes in the construction industry

Such well-established areas of Biotechnology as Medical, Agricultural, and Environmental  Biotechnology have thousands of valuable applications but  Construction Biotechnology, which is science and engineering of using of microorganisms in construction industry, is just arising. Before that, microbes

Synthetic biology competition inspires young microbiologists to change the world

Synthetic biology is a rapidly expanding area of science that incorporates engineering principles to design and build biological processes for useful and sustainable purposes. In addition, synthetic biology projects often incorporate expertise from the arts and humanities.

Natural compound-drugs are trending

Doing scientific research on natural compounds isolated from herbs and other plants is a very exciting, and can have a direct influence on human health, since such compounds have the potential to be developed in very successful

Increased microbial butanol tolerance

One exciting frontier in biofuel research is boosting production yields. Biofuels are produced using biological processes, usually from agricultural raw materials such as sugar, starch or oil. Currently the biofuel industry is dominated by ethanol production, but
