Virtual protein engineering towards improved biocatalysts

Sat, 2016-01-09 22:45

As part of a new venture in the Moitessier research group, recent Ph.D graduate, Josh Pottel, has delved into developing software to guide protein engineering. Computers can be used to simulate the shape and function of a protein or enzyme, but need the correct tools to be able to create accurate models. An initial platform for generating and applying new side-chain (rotamer) libraries has shown promise as the foundation for a biocatalysis prediction software.
