Riding the Wave of the Protein Revolution: Optimized Biocatalysts for the Pharmaceutical and Food Industries

Revolutionary advances in digital technology, genomics and sequencing have fueled tremendous advances in protein engineering. Enhanced understanding of the complex relationships between protein structure and function has unveiled virtually limitless opportunities for engineering proteins that meet precise performance specifications. Using highly advanced techniques that combine the disciplines of biochemistry, chemistry, recombinant DNA technology, structural biology, biochemical engineering and information technology, protein engineering enables scientists to create enzymes that are far superior to those available from nature, sometimes even absent in nature.
