Exciting opportunity for Marko Babić at EMBL-EBI

The Mechanism and Catalytic Site Atlas (M-CSA) offers summer internships to biochemists that are willing to curate their database with exciting new mechanisms of how individual enzymes work and which of their numerous amino acid residues directly acts in the chemistry of its catalytic function.

Our master project student Marko Babić has been offered a 3 month intership at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) where he will be learning about newly discovered enzymatic mechanisms to insert into an ever-growing database. The database is aimed to help researchers quickly find a trove of information on the active sites of enzymes and their mechanisms.

Great meeting today

We exchanged our ideas on enyzmes, catalytic triads and ways of studying them, with colleagues from EMBL-EBI (The European Bioinformatics Institute), Dr. Antonio Ribeiro and Ioannis Riziotis. Marko Babić presented his master thesis progress and opened up the floor for a fruitfull discussion.
