Tackling the numbers problem: Entwicklung nicht-nativer Enzymreaktionen
The screening effort of large protein variant libraries renders the probability of coincidental discovering a new enzyme with non-natural activity to almost zero - the so-called numbers problem. Insights into the origin of life, evolution and enzymatic promiscuity, combined with the inspiration of methods from organic chemistry, offer solutions for this problem. With the newly discovered enzymes synthetic micro production units shall be established in a Leibniz Research Cluster where engineering and biotechnology are combined.
