- Cellulolytic enzymes are already used in e.g. textile and paper industry. Genetic engineering, when combined with structural biology and a solid background in enzymology provides powerful means for learning and improving the enzyme function. In this proposal, all these aspects are included making possible significant advances in the understanding and engineering the catalytic mechanisms of cellulases.
