Bioinformatica e Biochimica

Teaching and scientific activities fall within the general context of Biological Chemistry and computational biology,
with a focus on the biochemistry of enzymatic proteins. The techniques implemented in this research area include:
  • Molecular biotechnology applied to the production ofrecombinant protein enzymesand their functional characterization
  • Protein engineering
  • Whole-cell biocatalyst engineering
  • Biocrystallography
  • In silico protein analyses for functional inference, evolutionary profiling and drug discovery
  • Comparative genome analyses for metabolic network reconstruction
