In cooperation with partners from the Leibniz Research Cluster we are building cell free biosynthetic systems. Enzymes responsible for specific reactions are isolated and purified, and subsequently immobilized on synthetic polymers. This cell free approach will be optimized in order to obtain complex active molecules starting from simple chemical units.
