IQAC Seminar - Dr. Miguel Alcalde - Institute of Catalysis and Petrochemistry (ICP-CSIC) on 4th March

Next Wednesday, 4th of March, Dr. Miguel Alcalde from Institute of Catalysis and Petrochemistry (ICP-CSIC) (Madrid), will deliver a lecture at 'Sala d'actes' room at 12:00 pm.


Speaker: Dr. Miguel Alcalde (Institute of Catalysis and Petrochemistry (ICP-CSIC))
Title: Dream biocatalysts by directed evolution
Date: 4th March 2020
Time: 12:00pm
Venue: Sala d'Actes room CID-CSIC. C. Jordi Girona 18-26, 08034 Barcelona



Directed molecular evolution has become the most reliable and robust method to tailor enzymes with improved traits. By mirroring the Darwinian algorithm of natural selection on a laboratoty scale, new bionolecules of invaluable biotechnological interest can now be engineered in a manner that surpasses the boundaries of nature. In this lecture, I summarize the repertoire of strategies that we have applied in the evolutionary journey that has taken the ligninolytic consortium of oxidoreductases involved in natural wood decay from forest to the laboratory bench, presenting some of our most successful and recent case studies.
