Willkommen | Welcome

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.

Our group at Biocat 2018

From August 26th to 30th, the 9th International Congress on Biocatalysis (Biocat 2018) was taking place in Hamburg-Harburg. Six members of our group joined with four poster presentations.

Jana's poster titled "Novel insights into β-etherase catalysis" was selected for a lightning talk and Anett gave a lecture on "Selective ring-opening of di-substituted epoxides by halohydrin dehalogenases".
