Enzymes play an increasingly important role for biotechnological applications. Hence, it is important to identify, isolate and characterize novel enzymes. Genome and metagenome projects provide a wealth of novel genes; however, functional screening of the respective enzymes is important to identify enzymatically active biocatalysts. Here, we report on screening methods to identify regio-and enantioselective lipases and industrially relevant properties including detergent stability.
