At Codexis we are building better enzymes that work harder, more efficiently and catalyze targeted reactions on an industrial scale. We use the CodeEvolver® directed evolution technology platform and the CodeXporter® enzyme production platform to enable the development of advanced biobased products.
Scientists at Codexis use our technology platform and systems biology to engineer the unique enzyme pathways and microorganisms that enable the production of renewable biobased chemical products such as ethanol and detergent alcohols.
By helping companies become environmentally sustainable, we can enhance their brand value and their bottom lines.
National Academy of Engineering Recognizes Directed Evolution Pioneers
Scientists Willem "Pim" Stemmer and Frances Arnold won the Charles Draper Prize in 2011 for their individual work in directed evolution, "a method used worldwide for engineering novel enzymes and biocatalytic processes for pharmaceutical and chemical products," according to the National Academy of Engineering. The original foundation of the Codexis technology platform, directed evolution was hailed by the NAE as a "milestone in biological research and nearly every industrial product and application involving proteins" relies on it.
