While enzymes are the foundation of basically all reactions in living organisms on the molecular level, nature did not evolve enzymes to be perfect biocatalysts that tolerate conditions present in industrial products and processes.
Protein engineering, more specifically directed enzyme evolution, allows to adapt enzymes to these “un-natural” environments by introducing mutations on the gene level that result in improved properties and features of the enzyme.
We are able to effectively optimize enzymes towards:
