For the last several years, we have been investigating the mechanisms of cellulose degradation by cellulase enzymes using computer simulations, and this talk will cover mechanistic investigations of enzymes that are able to bind to, depolymerize, and hydrolyze the cellulose polymer to soluble sugars as well as mechanistic investigations of esterase enzymes able to process hemicellulose.
