IRENE project is aimed at the development of computational methods and strategies that will enable to rationally design and produce the next generation of efficient biocatalysts for industrial applications. This will foster the diffusion of sustainable biocatalytic processes in industry. This will contribute to build on Europe’s strong position in enzyme manufacturing and utilization to attain leadership in industrial biotechnology.
Recent advances in computational sciences have led to novel sophisticated and refined methods that are able to describe the biocatalyst machinery in detail. The project aims at creating new tools and strategies for their implementation.
