Improving enzyme properties through directed evolution

Porter, Joanne Loren


Enzymes are specific and economical biocatalysts and as such are highly desirable synthetic tools. While there are many examples of successful applications of enzymes into industrial or commercial processes, the vast potential of enzyme technology is yet to be reached. Protein engineering, specifically directed evolution, is a powerful tool for generating enzymes tailored for specific industrial tasks. The ease of this process dictates the availability of enzymes and their diversity as...[Show more]
