Abstract

Protein engineering is the most important method to overcome the limitations of natural enzymes as biocatalysts. The past few years have seen a tremendous increase in novel concepts to facilitate the design of mutant libraries for focused directed evolution mostly guided by advanced bioinformatic tools. In addition, advanced high-throughput methods were developed using, for example, FACS analysis or microfluidic systems. These achievements significantly facilitate the tailor-made design of enzymes to make them suitable for industrial applications.
