Max Rubner Conference 2014: Enzymes in Food Processing

28.05.2014

The Max Rubner-Conference 2014 will address the topic "Enzymes in Food Processing “.

The conference aims to provide an updated overview on the applications of enzymes in the food sector, and of progresses made in respect to exploit more efficient biocatalysts, through screening, structural modification, and immobilization of enzymes.

The Max Rubner Conference will take place from October 08-10, 2014 at the Max Rubner-Institut in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Enzymes are useful biotechnological processing tools whose action can be controlled in the food matrix to produce higher quality food products. They have been used in the food industry for many years.

These include enzymes used in baking, beverages and brewing, dairy, dietary supplements, as well as fats and oils. Even if the integration of enzymes in food and feed processes is a well-established approach, evidence clearly shows that dedicated research efforts are consistently being made as to make this application of biological agents more effective and/or diversified.

In recent years, significant advances in enzyme engineering and biocatalyst design have fastened the pace of such developments.

The conference aims to provide an updated overview on the applications of enzymes in the food sector, and of progresses made in respect to exploit more efficient biocatalysts, through screening, structural modification, and immobilization of enzymes.

Targeted improvements aim at enzymes with enhanced thermal and operational stability, improved specific activity, modification of pH-activity profiles, and increased product specificity, among others. This has been mostly achieved through protein engineering and enzyme immobilization, along with improvements in screening.

The latter has been considerably improved due to the implementation of high-throughput techniques, and due to developments in protein expression and microbial cell culture. Expanding screening to relatively unexplored environments has also contributed to the identification and development of more efficient biocatalysts. Technological aspects are considered, but legal and health aspects are also addressed.

Im Focus: Atomic precision: technologies for the next-but-one generation of microchips

In the Beyond EUV project, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena are developing key technologies for the manufacture of a new generation of microchips using EUV radiation at a wavelength of 6.7 nm. The resulting structures are barely thicker than single atoms, and they make it possible to produce extremely integrated circuits for such items as wearables or mind-controlled prosthetic limbs.

In 1965 Gordon Moore formulated the law that came to be named after him, which states that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every one to two...

Im Focus: Researchers demonstrate size quantization of Dirac fermions in graphene

Characterization of high-quality material reveals important details relevant to next generation nanoelectronic devices

Quantum mechanics is the field of physics governing the behavior of things on atomic scales, where things work very differently from our everyday world.

Im Focus: Graphene: A quantum of current

When current comes in discrete packages: Viennese scientists unravel the quantum properties of the carbon material graphene

In 2010 the Nobel Prize in physics was awarded for the discovery of the exceptional material graphene, which consists of a single layer of carbon atoms...

Im Focus: Transparent - Flexible - Printable: Key technologies for tomorrow’s displays

The trend-forward world of display technology relies on innovative materials and novel approaches to steadily advance the visual experience, for example through higher pixel densities, better contrast, larger formats or user-friendler design. Fraunhofer ISC’s newly developed materials for optics and electronics now broaden the application potential of next generation displays. Learn about lower cost-effective wet-chemical printing procedures and the new materials at the Fraunhofer ISC booth # 1021 in North Hall D during the SID International Symposium on Information Display held from 22 to 27 May 2016 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

Im Focus: Trojan horses for hospital bugs

Staphylococcus aureus usually is a formidable bacterial pathogen. Sometimes, however, weakened forms are found in the blood of patients. Researchers of the University of Würzburg have now identified one mutation responsible for that phenomenon.

Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium that is frequently found on the human skin and in the nose where it usually behaves inconspicuously. However, once inside...
