PI-Poster on PHA-breakdown

30 June 2023

An informative poster with some results of the PI-project More Science than Fiction: growing spare parts ex vivo was showcased during a symposium in April in Groningen.

The research poster was on display at a symposium in honor of the installment of dr. Janneke Krooneman as lector bioconversion and fermentation technology at the Hanze UAS. Guests included authorities in the PHA field (i.e. Jan Ravenstein, Paques Biomaterials) as well as representatives from e.g. Chemport Delfzijl.
During the project, PHA depolymerases was cloned and purified. The produced enzyme has been checked for PHA degrading activity, as shown in the poster.  

The Hanzehogeschool event took place in April 2023 and it is described here.

The two stagiairs Jelle van den Broek en Heleen Diepeveen, Minor-studenten Biotechnologie, were involved in the project under the supervision of Jeroen Siebring and Janneke Krooneman. Well done to the team!
