 Project objective

The goal of this Marie Curie Individual fellowship proposal is to establish directed evolution of redox enzymes by means of electrochemical microarrays (DEMED) to enable the direct screening of the enzyme properties desired for their application in electrochemical devices. An O2 reducing metalloenzyme for implementation in biocathodes of H2/O2 enzymatic fuel cells will serve as model system to demonstrate that directed evolution of such redox enzymes screened by electrochemical droplet microarray is advantageous to specifically improve biofuel cell performances. The selected metalloenzyme is rubredoxin: oxygen oxidoreductase (ROO), which has never been applied to H2/O2 enzymatic fuel cells so far. First, ROO gene will be cloned and its random mutagenesis library will be synthesized. Second, the electrochemical droplet microarray will be adapted to enable the screening of the desired properties of the metalloenzyme. Third, electrochemical directed evolution of ROO will be carried out. Finally, the interface of ROO and electrode based on redox active polymers will be co-evolved with ROO to achieve high electron transfer rates to the enzyme and thus enable the fabrication of a high performance biocathode. It is expected that this project will have a groundbreaking on directed evolution of metalloenzymes for their practical implementation in electrochemical devices.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "DEMED" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
