Jonas Ravn

Postdoc

Dr. Jonas Ravn has a MSc in biotechnology from Copenhagen University and an Industrial PhD. from Novozymes and the Department of Bacteriology & Pathology at Ghent University, Belgium. Here, he developed, characterized and applied new bacterial and fungal xylanases to quantify their gut health effect in broiler chickens. He has now transferred to yeast research and the aim of his project is to identify yeast species that can break down xylan and characterize new xylanolytic enzymes with unique properties. Ultimately, this may lead to new cell factories and industrially relevant enzymes in the production of biofuels and biochemicals.
