PROTEIN ENGINEERING RESOURCES

Molecular Breeding
Molecular breeding of genes creates recombinant DNA libraries containing millions of potential chimeric variants. Diversity is sourced by selection of phylogenetic homologs containing appropriate sequence content. Parent input genes are fragmented and assembled in correct coding order by in vitro homologous recombination over regions of overlapping identity. 
Directed Evolution
Directed evolution of proteins parallels natural selection, whereby genetic variation is introduced into a population, environmental selective pressures are applied, and improvements in fitness are identified. Directed evolution is a key method of protein engineering for identifying novel protein variants that demonstrate desired character traits for specific applications.
