My project aims to characterize microbial enzymes that act upon lignin and its breakdown products from enzymology point of view. One particular aspect of it is the degradation of stilbene type intermediates into corresponding aldehydes. The aim of this study is to expand the knowledge of these oxygenases as well as aiding in the generation of higher value products out of lignin derived material, which may hopefully create a more sustainable forestry industry.
