João Renato C. Muniz is a professor at the São Carlos Institute of Physics (IFSC) at the University of São Paulo (USP). He holds a bachelor's degree and a bachelor's degree in Physics from the Paulista State University "Júlio de Mesquita Filho" - UNESP, Rio Claro (2000), Master's Degree in Biomolecular Physics - Protein Crystallography from São Carlos Institute of Physics University of São Paulo (2003) , Ph.D. in Biomolecular Physics - Crystallography of Proteins by the Institute of Physics of São Carlos University of São Paulo (2007) and PhD in Protein Crystallography and Molecular Modeling at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge, UK (2006). Post-doctorate in Protein Crystallography at the Institute of Physics of Sao Carlos (2008) and Post-doctoral Scientist at the Structural Genomics Consortium of the University of Oxford, UK (2008-2012). He was a Young Researcher at the IFSC / USP in the Molecular Biotechnology Group. He has experience in Physics, Protein Crystallography, X-ray Diffraction, Structural Biology, Structural Biochemistry, Molecular Modeling and obtaining crystalline complexes linked to drugs/fragments for the development of new drugs. The researcher has more than 190 crystallographic structures already deposited in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Many of the discoveries from the rapidly expanding genomic sciences are not effectively utilized in medicine, agriculture and industry. This is partly because of the disconnection between scientists in different disciplines, and because much of the translational research done in both industry and academia is patent-protected and not published in a timely manner. This INCT proposal addre...
The conversion of lignocellulosic biomass into fermentable sugars represents a viable alternative for the production of renewable fuels, such as ethanol. However, the recalcitrance and complexity of this material make it challenging to develop cost-effective processes, making it imperative to apply more efficient enzymes. Most of the cellulases and hemicellulases used in biotechnologica...
The drop of petroleum reserves, the growing energy demand from emerging countries, and the eminent necessity for reducing carbon dioxide emissions indicate the importance for the pursuit of new sources of renewable energy. However, such sources must have a real character of effective replacement and not only be complementary to the existing resources. Thus, the bioethanol production by ...
