Speeding up new enzyme design

Enzymes can provide a green alternative to many chemical reactions. But designing the right enzymes for the chemical industry is a complex and time-consuming job. University of Groningen scientists Hein Wijma and Robert Floor have developed a computer-based approach to enzyme design that can speed up the process enormously by screening ‘in silico’ rather than in the laboratory.
