Struktur-funktions analyse af alginat modificerende proteiner og deres anvendelse i nye produkter til bioteknologisk industri og forskning



Biological polymers will receive a significant attention in many technological applications in the near future, because they can be produced and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. One of these polymers is alginate, which have a large potential for application. Alginates are built up from only two basic modules; it is the combination of those that decides their physical/chemical behaviour. Some microorganisms have complicated protein complexes modifying alginates according to their needs. The aim of this project is to understand the way of their working on a molecular level in order to be able to exploit this knowledge for the industrial production of custom-made alginates with certain properties.
