We are happy to announce that Haiyang (Ocean) Cui successfully defended his doctoral thesis.

His dissertation is entitled “How to engineer an organic solvent tolerant lipase: Insights from directed evolution and molecular dynamics simulations". A part of his work and results has been published in Chemistry - A European Journal and ChemCatChem with the titles

CompassR yields highly organic solvent‐tolerant enzymes through recombination of compatible substitutions",

How to Engineer Organic Solvent Resistant Enzymes: Insights from Combined Molecular Dynamics and Directed Evolution Study

Computer‐Assisted Recombination (CompassR) Teaches us How to Recombine Beneficial Substitutions from Directed Evolution Campaigns.

Ocean worked in the division “Computation Biology” under the supervision of Dr. Mehdi Davari and Prof. Ulrich Schwaneberg.

The entire Schwaneberg Group congratulates Ocean on his success and wishes him all the best for his future.
