  Event Report

BIT's 2nd Symposium on Enzymes & Biocatalysis-2011 (SEB-2011), successfully held in Dalian World Expo Center on April 25-30, 2011. Totally, there were nearly 300 participants from more than 30 countries and areas have attended the seb-2011.

As the keynote speakers, Dr. Wenping Wu, Senior Director, R&D Center, Novozymes China, China; Dr. Mani Subramanian, Professor, Chemical & Biochemical Engineering; Director, Center for Biocatalysis & Bioprocessing, The University of Iowa, USA; Dr. John H. Dawson, Carolina Distinguished Professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of South Carolina, USA and Dr. Russ Hille, Professor, Department of Biochemistry, University of California, USA made excellent presentations and warmly discussed with the audiences at keynote forum.

18 sessions covered 9 fields including Emerging Research on Enzymes, Enzyme Titer and Activity Improvement, Enzymes and Biocatalysis in Pharmaceutical Industries, Applied Industrial Enzymes, Basic Research on Biocatalysis, Biocatalysis in Organic Chemistry and Molecular Synthesis, Enzymes in Environment, Bioremediation and Bioaugmentation, Biocatalysis and Biocatalytic Technologies, Alternative Applications of Biocatalysis and so on. With the mission to initiate a sustainable platform for exchanging up-to-the-minute upstream and downstream achievements, industrial needs and research opportunities of industrial biotechnology fields in Asia Pacific Rim, participants from academic, industrial professionals and key-decision makers delivered the new achievement on their research, together discussed and analyzed the development of Enzymes and Biocatalysis. The conference has promoted the communication of colleagues and collaboration of partners from the upstream to the downstream of Enzymes and Biocatalysis.

Depending on the warmly support and good suggestions from all of the participants, we are confident in organizing seb-2012 which would be better and more successful than seb-2011.
