Born in Pati, 7 August, 1968, Ali Rochman is a lecturer of chemistry, at the Faculty of Science and Technology (FST), Universitas Airlangga. His academic career in chemistry began when taking undergraduate program in Universitas Airlangga, and graduated in 1992. After a few years, he went on to study at Master Program in Universitas Indonesia and earned his degree in 2002. He is currently studying in doctoral program at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, to learn further about Protein Crystallography. He joined an organization called Indonesian Protein Society (IPS). Currently, he is a lecturer at FST who is responsible for a number of courses: Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Enzymology, Bioinformatics, Analytical Chemistry Capita Selecta, Advanced Biochemistry, Physical Organic Chemistry and many more. In terms of research, Ali has a lot of experience.
He has made serial studies such as “Kloning 3-Ketosteroid Δ1-Dehidrogenase Mycobacterium Tuberculosis”, “Target Baru Pengobatan Tuberkulosis, dan Ekspresinya dalam Escherichia Coli” in addition to “3-Ketosteroid Δ4-(5)-Dehidrogenase dari Mycobacterium tuberculosis sebagai Target Baru Pengobatan Tuberkulosis”. Meanwhile, in terms of publications, including his works in international journals, we can find his work in world-class journals like the followings: Structure and Catalytic Mechanism of 3-Ketosteroid Dehydrogenases (2016), Mutation Analysis of The pKa Modulator Residue in b-D-Xylosidase from Geobacillus Thermoleovorans (2016), Crystal Structure and Site-Directed Mutagenesis of 3-Ketosteroid Δ1-dehydrogenase from Rhodococcus Erythropolis (2013). The other one is entitled Purification, crystallization and preliminary X-ray crystallographic analysis of 3-ketosteroid Δ1dehydrogenase from Rhodococcus Erythropolis (2012), and Purification, Crystallization and Preliminary X-ray Analysis of a Thermostable Glycoside Hydrolase Family 43 b-xylosidase from Geobacillus Thermoleovorans (2007). Protein Crystallography is a science applied to determine protein structure using X-ray. These proteins are categorized accordingly based on their grades and structures involving various processes. This science is the basis in the formation of proteins and medicines as well as for our daily needs. (*)
