Innovation in Enzyme Engineering

  • Lemuel B. WingardJr.


It is always a pleasure to present the keynote address because one has considerable latitude as to topic and content. This latitude is particularly appropriate for a discussion of enzyme engineering, because the initial interest in this field seems to have matured considerably over the past few years. Most of the simpler studies have been done and the obvious applications tested, yet much of the earlier promise of enzyme engineering still remains as undemonstrated potential. Although a review of some of the developments that have occurred since the 1973 conference appears appropriate, a strong argument for more innovative approaches to research and development in enzyme engineering seems of greater value for stimulating the proper evaluation and hopeful achievement of more of these potentials.
