报告摘要:

Biocatalysis has been increasingly used for practical synthesis of chemicals, fuels, and materials thanks to recent advances in enzyme engineering, synthetic biology, artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML), and laboratory automation. In this talk, I will discuss our recent effort in designing novel synthetic routes and repurposed enzymes for synthesis of fine chemicals by exploring the synergy between enzymatic catalysis and non-enzymatic catalysis. Particularly, I will highlight our new strategies of combining photocatalysis with biocatalysis for abiological transformations, which offer many advantages such as new reactivity, high enantioselectivity, greener syntheses, and high yields. In addition, I will highlight the development of machine learning and laboratory automation tools for enzyme discovery and engineering. Finally, I will introduce our new AI/ML tools for synthesis planning that integrates chemical catalysis and biocatalysis. All these strategies and tools should greatly accelerate the development of biocatalysts for applications related to human health, energy, and sustainability.
