Jenny Stanford Series on Biocatalysis

Pharmaceutical Biocatalysis

Drugs, Genetic Diseases, and Epigenetics

edited by Peter Grunwald

“This book is a highly recommended treatise for students, teachers, and researchers working in the many facets of biocatalysis as utilized by the pharmaceutical industry. The book spans the production of fine chemicals and active pharmaceutical ingredients in bacteria and yeast through to plant biofactories. There are interesting chapters on using microbial systems for the synthesis and degradation of pharmaceuticals and on the enzymes driving drug metabolic clearance in the human liver. The treatment of waste water using laccases or ligninolytic enzymes is also featured. The potential for biocatalysis to influence future gene therapy applications, e.g., CRIPSR-Cas9 and CAR-T, is discussed in great detail. Each topic is covered in genuine depth, well referenced, and written by the experts in their respective fields.”
