Biography

Bonilla Rodriguez, Gustavo O. , completed his Diploma: Pharmacy and Biochemistry, Federal University of Santa Maria, Brazil, 1984. Master degree: Biochemistry, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, 1989. PhD: Sciences, State University of Campinas, Brazil, 1992. Associate Professor at the State University of São Paulo (UNESP), Brazil. Professor of Biochemistry and leader of a Research Group of Functional and structural analysis of plant and microbial hydrolases with potential use in biotechnological or industrial processes. The research line includes frequently interrelated projects for undergraduate and graduate students. The first studies performed at LPB involved plant proteases, and over the years we have included new subclasses of hydrolases: lipases, cellulases, β-glucosidases and pectinases. The guiding objective of the research is to isolate and characterize hydrolases with interesting functional properties that could, potentially, be incorporated into biotechnological or industrial processes. Whenever possible we advance beyond the screening and basic characterization stage, performing a further characterization of the enzymes in terms of their structural and functional properties, ocasionally involving collaboration with other research labs. The Laboratory of Protein Biochemistry, thanks largely to the financial support of Brazilian Agencies such as FAPESP and FUNDUNESP, has a basic infrastructure for the isolation and characterization of enzymes. We currently maintain collaboration with a research group of Applied Biochemistry and Microbiology at our campus, allowing us to expand the sources of the enzymes in order to include microorganisms, particularly thermophilic fungi.
