The main focus of our research group is to study the unique features of enzymes towards synthetically useful chemical transformations. The work is an interdisciplinary research and involves both; organic chemistry & molecular biology. We are keenly interested in the development of multienzymatic cascade by a Systems Biocatalysis Approach for obtaining valuable pharmaceutical precursors (APIs) and fine chemicals. Fine-tuning enzymes for a required process by improving their stability, selectivity and activity through directed evolution and bioinformatic techniques is all part of our work. Our overall aim is to develop enzymatic processes which are green, sustainable and economical at every step.
