PETases

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.
