Research topics

 

Our past and current research has been focused on several enzyme classes such as lipases, esterases, oxidoreductases, aromatic ammonia-lyases and aminomutases, ω-transaminases, carboxylic acid decarboxylases.

The research activity at the Biocatalysis and Biotransformations Research Center is aimed at:
