Tianjin Engineering Center for Biocatalytic Technology


Biocatalysis and biotransformation are the core of industrial biotechnology. Tianjin Engineering Center for Biocatalytic Technology is affiliated with Tianjin Institute of Industrial Biotechnology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The institute has technology platforms for high-throughput screening and protein structure analysis, and talent staff with biology, chemistry and engineering. The research areas of the center include enzyme discovery and evolution, immobilization of biocatalysts, protein structural analysis, biocatalytic reaction mechanistic studies, and integration of biotransformation with chemical synthesis. The center also emphasizes the application of biocatlytic technology in the production of high-value chemicals for pharmaceutical, agrichemical, food ingredient and cosmetic industries, with the aim to provide technical supports for the sustainable development of these industries.
