Prozomix obtains EPSRC PhD research grant

Posted Thu 5th Jun

Prozomix has obtained a 3-year PhD research grant (“The Development of Sequence Divergent Ranges of Biomass Converting Enzymes”) 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 research and development of ranges of enzymes related by defined primary sequence homology, and their use in biomass saccharification research.
