We did have to change the title because the journal does not allow commas, so the original manuscript titled:
“Surpassing Thermodynamic, Kinetic, and Stability Barriers to Isomerization Catalysis for Tagatose Biosynthesis”
is now renamed to:
“Galactose to Tagatose Isomerization at Moderate Temperatures with High Conversion and Productivity”
