Designer Enzymes - Improved biocatalysts for bioprocesses

Enzymes are increasingly used as efficient biocatalysts to perform a wide range of chemical reactions. Research is needed on how enzymes can be successfully engineered through directed evolution in the laboratory involving rational design over a short timescale. In order to fully harness the power of directed evolution for better catalysts, a sustained effort is needed to develop high-throughput screening methods specifically directed towards enzymes. There is a general need in industrial biotechnology for generic platform technologies and methods for fast and accurate enzyme activity determination and generic methods to improve enzymes are urgently needed.
