Wide representation of CLASSY at the International Symposium on Biocatalysis and Biotransformations

Our partners from the University of Graz represented the CLASSY project at the 16th International Symposium on Biocatalysis and Biotransformations (#Biotrans2023) in La Rochelle, France. Prof. Wolfgang Kroutil, Dr. Christoph K. Winkler, Dr. Mathias Pickl and Mr. Stefan Simic had the opportunity to showcase some of their latest research on the CLASSY project and discuss their enthusiasm for enzymes with fellow researchers.

The in-person event provided an overview of the latest advances in the fields of biocatalysis and biotransformations, gathering innovative and interdisciplinary strategies to overcome scientific and technological hurdles. Various topics had been covered, such as enzyme discovery and design, reaction engineering, enzyme mechanisms, computational methods, synthetic biology, metabolic engineering (chemo)enzymatic cascades, and industrial biocatalysis.

The Biocatalysis Research Group led by Prof. Kroutil had been busy presenting their latest works with two posters and two oral presentations during the conference:

It was a good opportunity to meet experts from different areas and exchange ideas with actors from the private and public sectors in a stimulating atmosphere. As Dr. Winkler words: “The conference was really informative and our contributions were well received”.
