Enzyme microarrays and bio-templated nanomaterials

Enzyme microarrays and bio-templated nanomaterials

Details

New methods to determine bio-catalyst activities and selectivities are developed including the application of microarray technology, which in combination with electrochemical detection serves as a valuable diagnostic tool facilitating highly parallelized activity determination for pharmacologically important enzymes. Efficient formation of inorganic/biological interfaces is will be developed in this project and also applied for synthesis of new bio-templated nano materials.
