Enzyme engineering is a vital, modern biotechnology to fine-tune enzymes. As a new high technology, it greatly promotes the development of life and industry. Enzyme engineering strategies not only include natural enzyme mining, heterologous expression, directed evolution, gene shuffling or family shuffling, enzyme immobilization and synzymes but also rational design based on structure–function insights, computational methods and machine learning, as well as novel scaffolding and compartmentalization techniques to improve the performance of multienzyme systems. Efficient enzyme engineering strategies improve enzymatic properties such as the activity, specificity, stability and stereoselectivity as well as balance sequential reactions and route intermediates by co-localizing multiple enzymes. This will facilitate the application of biocatalysis and biosynthesis in food, pharmaceutical and chemicals fields and accelerate the development of a green biological manufacturing industry.
Therefore, for this Special Issue, we are interested in presenting the most recent progress in advances in enzyme engineering, biocatalysis and biosynthesis. Fundamental studies to establish innovative and efficient enzyme engineering strategies as well as studies related to the development of biocatalysis and biosynthesis processes applied to industries are welcome.
It is with great pleasure and honor that we invite you to submit a review article or original research paper for possible publication in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
