Biocatalysis: Biochemical Fundamentals and Applications (Second Edition)
- About the Author
In this Completely Revised and Extended Edition with a significantly enhanced content, all Chapters have been updated considering relevant literature and recent developments until 2016 together with application oriented examples with a focus on Industrial Biocatalysis. Newly treated topics comprise among others systems metabolic engineering approaches, metagenome screening, new tools for pathway engineering, and de-novo computational design as actual research areas in biocatalysis. Information about different aspects of RNA technologies, and completely new Chapters on 'Fluorescent Proteins' and 'Biocatalysis and Nanotechnology' are also included.
Peter Grunwald studied chemistry at the Universities of Saarbrücken and Hamburg, Germany, where he graduated in the field of high-frequency spectroscopy, and then became a staff member of the Institute of Physical Chemistry. After receiving his PhD in Physical Chemistry he founded a biotechnology research group. His research interests focus on the preparation and properties of immobilized enzymes, enzyme kinetics in organic solvents, environmental biochemistry, and chemical education. Professor Grunwald is among others editor of a Series on Biocatalysis published by Pan Stanford Publishing Pte. Ltd.
