Organized by the Association of Chemists, the 3rd Eurasia Biochemical Approaches & Technologies (EBAT) congress was held in Antalya on 04-07 November 2021 with the cooperation of Ataturk University, Hacettepe University, Gebze Technical University and Bilkent University.
While 53 participants from the country and 240 participants from 14 universities from abroad participated in the 3rd EBAT congress with 180 papers, our GERC founder, Assoc. Prof. Barış Binay participated in the congress with his speech titled “Pichia Pastoris Expression Systems for Producing Biocatalyst: Case Studies”. In his presentation, while stating the advantages of Pichia pastoris expression systems in recombinant protein production, he shared his studies and effects on the production of laccase, pectinase and formate dehydrogenase enzymes, which are frequently used in industrial applications, in Pichia pastoris expression systems.
Our graduate student Buse Çaloğlu made a presentation titled “Production of High Value-added Proteins with Enzyme Engineering Techniques and Bioprocess Development” and also hosted the congress.
Our graduate student, Hakan Onur, made a presentation on the thesis titled “Expression and Biochemical Characterization of Hypsibius dujardini Epoxide Hydrolase (HdEH) Enzyme in Pichia pastoris“.
