The research activity of Dr. B. Cobucci Ponzano concerns the study of the structure / function relationship of proteins and enzymes and of the mechanistic aspects related to hydrolysis and to enzymatic synthesis of glycosides. In particular, it deals with enzymes that modify carbohydrates (glycosidase) mainly from (hyper) thermophilic microorganisms, especially Archaea. In the lasts years,
