We are experts in biocatalyst engineering with a focus on laboratory evolution of enzymes and related rational methods. Enzymes were designed by nature to be regulated and operated in aqueous solution at a physiological pH, ambient temperature and certain substrate concentrations. However, enzyme properties are often far away from application demands. Laboratory evolution mimics natural evolution and selection in a test tube and allows us to tailor enzymes for our needs in applications and to discover fundamental design principles of proteins.
