Copenhagen Bioscience Lecture - November 2017

Foredrag — The Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures are a series of open lectures for all researchers and other interested in and around the Copenhagen area. Every 4 weeks, on a Thursday evening, you are invited for lectures on themes with a general interest for the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers and bioscience researchers in general. Often there will be a cross-disciplinary focus. The lecture on 9 November 2017 features researchers from Novozymes to talk about the Indox project – an enzyme class of great scientific interest. Speakers will be Jesper Wind, Lisbeth Kalum and Owik Matthias Herold-Majumdar.

INDOX – Industrial oxidoreductases

Oxidoreductases are a powerful class of industrially relevant enzyme, that can make all kinds of complex chemistry. They have long lingered in the shadow of the hydrolases, such as protease, lipase and carbohydrase, but attempts are being made to change that scenario. Come and hear about the recently finished EU-supported FM7 project: INDOX, and the quest to find new applications for oxidoreductases, and especially the tricks performed by the new kid on the block, namely peroxygenases.
