Marcel Taillefer

Postdoc

Marcel Taillefer joined the Division of Industrial Biotechnology in October 2016 as a post-doctoral researcher. His research is focused on the elucidation of the carbohydrate active enzyme machineries in certain soil bacteria from the Bacteroidetes phylum. These bacteria are capable of efficient degradation of lignocellulosic materials, and the main goal of the research is the discovery of novel enzymes capable of degrading these complex structures. The discovery of novel enzymes could contribute to the improvement of current industrial enzyme cocktails used in biomass conversion.
