Protein Engineering and Enzymology
Protein engineering is the process of developing useful proteins with much research taking place into the understanding of protein folding and recognition for protein design principles. Protein engineering has for decades been a powerful tool in biotechnology for generating vast numbers of useful enzymes for industrial applications. There will be challenging topics related to the protein dynamics in the field of protein engineering. Enzyme Engineering is the application of genetic engineering techniques to enzyme technology. There are a number of properties which may be improved or altered by genetic engineering including the production and kinetics of the enzyme, Structure of the enzymes, De novo design, Intersection of protein engineering and next-generation sequencing, Rational alteration of enzyme function, Combinatorial Enzyme Engineering & Enzyme and biosensor Engineering.
