IRENE conference


The three-year work of FP7 IRENE project made possible the convergence of different expertise for developing computational methods and strategies for rationally design and produce the next generation of efficient biocatalysts for industrial applications. Now, we intend to present the final results of IRENE’s project and to stimulate the dialogue between academic and industrial excellence in the field of computational enzymology.  The objective is to explore new horizons for a novel, integrated and effective study of enzyme characteristics.
