  • 1.4 ECTS

This course will provide detailed information on the basic principles of enzymes, their engineering and immobilisation and on industrial enzymatic conversion processes. Also issues relevant to industrial practice such as intellectual property will be presented.

Background

Enzymes are used in various industrial processes ranging from the ton scale conversion of starch to the kilogram scale synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients. The enzymes used in these industrial processes need to be robust, cheap and work under varying conditions.

This course will provide detailed information on the basic principles of enzymes, their engineering and immobilisation, and on industrial enzymatic conversion processes. Also issues relevant to industrial practice such as intellectual property will be presented.

Target group

The course is at postgraduate level. The course will be valuable for PhD candidates who are working with enzymes in academia and industry, or are considering to do so, in the fields of biocatalysis, food and feed science, bioprocess engineering, and similar areas.
