Selected Papers from ENZITEC 2010

Description

The 9th edition of the Brazilian Seminar on Enzyme Technology, ENZITEC 2010 (http://www.enzitec2010.com.br/), will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from November 10th to 12th, 2010. The event, which has as subject matter the versatility and efficiency of enzyme technology in sustainable innovation, aims at further research and development in enzyme technology in Brazil alongside promoting its economic viability. The event encompasses the worldwide interest in industrial enzyme research and uses vis-a-vis the necessary industrial shift towards sustainable development and the use of renewable raw materials. Within this context, biocatalysts are the logical tool to process renewable resources as they have evolved naturally to match each other. It is now, therefore, the time to develop dexterity on enzyme technology and expand its use in a fully efficient manner. The program of ENZITEC 2010 will offer a rich and updated view of the area, also emphasizing the importance of continuous investment in human resources.

We are pleased to invite the ENZITEC 2010 participants to submit original research articles, as full-length manuscripts to this special issue. Manuscripts should address, but are not limited to, the following enzyme technology fields:

  • Enzyme-producing microorganisms: strategies for isolation and identification of new microbes and genes
  • Molecular strategies for the production and improvement of enzymes
  • Bioprocesses for enzymes production
  • Enzymes for biofuels production
  • Enzymes in the food and beverages industry
  • Enzymes on the textiles, pulp, and paper industry
  • Specialty enzymes: therapeutic, fine chemistry, and analytical
  • Full cells bioconversion processes
  • Environmental biocatalysis

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/er/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
