Biocatalysis: Fundamentals and Applications

Front Cover
Wiley, Feb 27, 2007 - Science - 634 pages
0 Reviews
The whole range of biocatalysis, from a firm grounding in theoretical concepts to in-depth coverage of practical applications and future perspectives.
The book not only covers reactions, products and processes with and from biological catalysts, but also the process of designing and improving such biocatalysts.
One unique feature is that the fields of chemistry, biology and bioengineering receive equal attention, thus addressing practitioners and students from all three areas.

About the author (2007)

Andreas S. Bommarius obtained his diploma in Chemistry from the Technical Universtiy in Munich, Germany, and, in 1989, his PhD in Chemical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA,USA. In 1990, he joined Degussa as head of the Biocatalysis Laboratory and pilot plant. Since 2000 he is affiliated at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, as professor in the Schools of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry and Biochemistry. His main research interests are novel redox enzyme systems, stability of protein biocatalysts, as well as novel catalysts through directed evolution.

Bettina R. Riebel obtained her diploma in Biology at the University of Cologne, Germany, and her PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Düsseldorf, Germany. She then occupied postdoctoral associate positions with Roche Diagnostics (then Boehringer Mannheim) in Penzberg and at the Research Center Jülich. As of 2000, she is part of the Institute of Pathology in the School of Medicine at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, where her main research interests are in host-pathogen relationships, and specifically in tyrosine kinases and cell signaling.
