We were at BioTrans 2017 in Budapest.
The BioTrans conferences are organized biennially for biologists and chemists to obtain top level information in the field of biocatalysis and biotransformation. BioTrans2017 will be the 13th in this series of meetings initiated in Graz (A, 1993) and last held in Vienna (A, 2015), bridging biologists and chemists in academia and industry.
Biotrans2017 in Budapest – a beautiful and multifaceted city located in the middle of Europe – covered a wide range of topics related to biotransformations and biocatalysis. Conference deliberations’ manifold themes: single and multistep biotransformations in synthetic processes; systems biocatalysis and bio(techno)logy; discovery, de-novo design, and development of biocatalysts; enzyme engineering by structure guided directed evolution; (bio)process intensification by enzyme immobilization, compartmentalization and microreactors; industrial (bio)process development, scale-up and manufacturing.
We were there as 8 scientists to present our projects.
A beautiful view from Tuna River in Budapest. The place where we took picture is named Citadella.
Mervan presented his poster which was about discoverying new formate dehydrogenases for Co2 reduction.
Ersin presented his poster which was about producing and characterization of oxalate decarboxylase enzyme.
Meltem presented her poster which was about mutation in Candida methylica formate dehydrogenase
Huri presented her poster which was about effect of metals on formate dehydrogenase
