ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum

Bernd Ketelsen Striberny is presenting at ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum on “Data-driven innovation in the aquaculture and marine industries”

Challenges in the sequence-based discovery of novel enzymes and the need for bioinformatics solutions in the biotech industry

Modern high-throughput sequencing of genomes, transcriptomes and metagenomes generates a large source for the discovery of new enzymes with improved or novel functions. Searching these datasets needs however advanced tools to detect sequences which eventually code for enzymes with sought-after characteristics. Efficient bioinformatics solutions will enable the biotech industry to increase the success rate and lower the downstream costs to develop new enzymes.
