San Jose, CA
27-28 October, 2021

With the emergence of new techniques and methods to reconstruct and engineer enzymes, it is more exciting than ever to be working in the field of protein engineering, bringing to light new biocatalysts and molecules not found in nature for industrial applications.

“The global enzymes market was valued at $7,082 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $10,519 million in 2024, registering a CAGR of 5.7% from 2018 to 2024.”

Why Attend

Bringing to light new biocatalysts and molecules not found in nature for industrial applications. With the emergence of new techniques and methods to reconstruct and engineer enzymes, it is more exciting than ever to be working in protein engineering, bringing to light new biocatalysts and molecules not found in nature for industrial applications.

The series brings together a global audience and global lineup of biocatalyst and protein modifications specialists to share how to implement the new technologies. With the applications growing across pharmaceutical, flavour & fragrance, consumer goods, food & beverage and agrochemical sectors, we have created a protein and enzyme engineering platform that will allow the community to improve capabilities to industrialize sustainable enzyme products and increase product efficiency globally.

  1. Understand the challenges and requirements of the industry in their internal R&D projects to support scale-up processes, next-generation mutant library screening, or knowledge of machine learning and AI to optimize biocatalysts for industrial applications.
  2. Expand your commercial opportunities and market growth by learning what new industry sectors are seeing the benefit of enzyme engineering to synthesize unprecedented molecules of interest and engage and network with these industries to form new third-party collaborations, allowing you to advance your market growth.
  3. Demonstrate advancements in your service capabilities by actively promoting the work of your technical teams through bespoke webinar opportunities, presentations, and interactive discussion with the industry.
  4. Though we’re aiming for a face-to-face event, if you’re unable to join us in San Jose, replicate that ‘chance meeting’ at our networking roulette and take advantage of our 1-2-1 networking platform to facilitate new connections that lead to a great ROI.
