Congratulations Yu Ji on her recent Publication!

In Yu´s new publication, a protocol for the identification and engineering of anchor peptides which serve as non-catalytic binding domains specifically towards synthetic plastics was reported. The identified anchor peptides hold the promise to be fused to known plastic degrading enzymes and thereby enhance the efficiency of biocatalytic plastic recycling processes. This work was realized in the division PlastiQuant and it was possible through European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement no. 870294 for the project MIX-UP.
