Thank you for visiting the biochemistry group headed by Prof. Dr. Anett Schallmey.
We believe that enzymes are excellent and sustainable catalysts applicable for many chemical reactions and thus present a valuable alternative to many chemical catalysts. Our interdisciplinary research focusses on the investigation, utilization and engineering of novel enzymes as biocatalysts for various industrially relevant applications.

On November 2nd,
Anett Schallmey will have her inaugural lecture at the TU Braunschweig.
The lecture will be held at Haus der Wissenschaft, Aula, 17:00.
The lecture (in German) is titled "Sind Enzyme die besseren Katalysatoren? - Biokatalyseforschung in Zeiten der Bioökonomie". After the lecture, a reception will take place at the venue.
From August 28th till September 1st, Hauke, Elia, Marcus and Willem (from left) were presenting their research about lignin degrading enzymes and halohydrin dehalogenases at the biocat conference 2016. The conference is one of the largest in our field and took place at the Hamburg university of technology in Hamburg-Harburg.
Our review "Recent advances on halohydrin dehalogenases — from enzyme identification to novel biocatalytic applications" has been published as open access article in Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology. Please have a look for the latest literature published on these interesting enzymes.
On the 2nd and 3rd of June 2016, the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain) hosted the Progress Meeting of the H2020 CarbaZymes project (www.carbazymes.com). Altogether, 40 researchers - including Willem and Julia from our group - participated representing 6 innovative SME´s, 1 industry leader in specialty chemicals and 7 outstanding academic and research organizations from 5 European countries. [...]
Our manuscript titled "Biochemical and biocatalytic characterization of 17 novel halohydrin dehalogenases" has been accepted for publication in Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology (doi: 10.1007/s00253-016-7493-9).
The article Exploring glutathione lyases as biocatalysts: paving the way for enzymatic lignin depolymerization and future stereoselective applications has been selected for front inside cover of the Green Chemistry November 2015 issue.
