Biocatalysis - Enzyme engineering and directed evolution

Thursday, August 16, 2012: 2:00 PM-5:00 PM
Meeting Room 11-12, Columbia Hall, Terrace level (Washington Hilton)
Nobuhiko Tokuriki
Directed evolution has been applied to many enzymes and successful to engineer their properties. Recent theoretical and technological advances expand a potential to create novel enzymes for industrial applications. In this session, we will discuss a frontier in enzyme engineering and directed evolution.
