SBP-N Project - Biomaterials, bioactives and enzymes
Beyond MACROSEA - the seaweed Biorefinery Platform in Norway (SBP-N)
Engineering chitinolytic activity into a cellulose-active lytic polysaccharide monooxygenase provides insights into substrate specificity
Lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases (LPMOs) catalyze oxidative cleavage of recalcitrant polysaccharides such as cellulose and chitin and play an important role in the enzymatic degradation of biomass. While it is clear that these monocopper enzymes have extended substrate-binding surfaces for intera...

3DLife: Validating new high-throughput methods for 3D cell culture screening
Expanding the (meta)genomics toolbox for the discovery and production of novel natural products from microbial resources
Bioactive chemicals produced by microorganisms isolated from nature have been the source of most antibiotics in medical use today. However, many antibiotics are currently losing their potency due to rapidly spreading antibiotic resistance among pathogenic bacteria. Coincidently, very few new antibio...
