Reference: SNEO-20181226
Start-End Date: 1 January 2019 – 30 June 2020
Grant amount: 200.500€
Project name: HEER - Haciendo la evolución in silico de enzimas una realidad

* Ha sido financiado por los Presupuestos Generales del Estado a cargo de la aplicación 27.12.467C.74908


Funded by Torres Quevedo program from Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, the project goal is to investigate and define at the atomic level, the functioning of PETases enzymes, through a specialized software, ZYMEVOLVER. This information will be essential to optimize, in a controlled way, these enzymes in the multiple processes where they can be applied.
