It will be the third edition of an international symposium bringing together researchers from academia, institutes and companies active in the research on various aspects of the enzymes belonging to the Alpha amylase superfamily. The scientific knowledge on this family, comprising a number of enzymes applied on an industrial scale, is growing rapidly. The program will focus on the diversity of the enzyme family, the regulation of metabolism of starch and glycogen as well as on the various families of starch-binding domains (i.e. the CBM families). Also attention will be paid to applied aspects. Within the sessions the findings on new primary and tertiary structures, specificity and evolution, protein engineering, catalytic and binding mechanisms, and stability and stabilisation will be presented.
