I will describe how we can use the most powerful biological design process and evolution, to optimize existing enzymes and invent new ones, thereby circumventing our profound ignorance of how sequence encodes function. By mimicking nature’s evolutionary tricks and using a little chemical intuition, we can generate whole new enzyme families that catalyze…
