Prozomix obtains EPSRC MRes research grant

Posted Tue 8th Apr

Prozomix has obtained an MRes research grant (“Production and Biochemical Characterisation of a New Range of Recombinant Biomass Conversion Enzymes for Biofuel / Biorefinery applications”) from EPSRC.  Further rapid / essential growth of the global renewable energy sector is dependent heavily on the development of new technologies.  In particular, greatly improved access to the huge natural diversity of enzymes evolved to degrade plant cell wall material especially offers hope with respect to the emerging biofuel / biorefinery programmes.  However, tapping into this diversity requires a committed step approach to how such products are developed and made available to the global research community.  Prozomix is currently engaged with a rapidly expanding R&D programme to deliver such advanced research products, which are fully compatible with current rapid research techniques.  This grant, jointly held with Northumbria University, UK, will focus on the applied characterisation of a large range of as yet unstudied enzymes mined from the global microbial genomic resource.
