Directed evolution is a powerful technology that mimics the process of natural selection to guide protein engineering toward pre-defined, commercially-relevant objectives. In this free webinar, an expert from Codexis will provide an overview of directed evolution, and how Codexis applies it to improving enzymes for applications such as biotherapeutic discovery, the sustainable manufacture of pharmaceuticals and natural food ingredients, and to life science applications such as the reading and writing of DNA.
TORONTO (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 12, 2019
Tailoring proteins for real-world applications often requires significant modification of naturally occurring biological sequences to generate variants that function at a commercial scale. This may require hundreds of changes in the protein’s amino acid sequence. To efficiently drive enzyme performance to the desired objective, the right technologies, databases and associated software, and workflows are crucial to ensuring that decisions are made quickly and effectively and that only the desired mutations are incorporated.
Codexis’ CodeEvolver® platform is a powerful protein engineering technology that mimics, and even dramatically accelerates, the process of natural evolution to guide protein function toward a desired objective. This technology is increasingly viewed as critical for the optimization of enzymes and other proteins for a wide variety of applications.In fact, the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Frances Arnold for her work on directed evolution due to its impact on a variety of fields.
Please join Oscar Alvizo, Director of Computational Biology at Codexis, on Friday, November 22, 2019 at 12pm EST, in a live session where he will provide an overview of directed evolution, including how it is implemented and how it can be used to enhance processes and products.
Specific topics to be discussed include:
- Identification ofnatural proteins for optimization toward desired objectives
- Strategies for designing protein libraries using proprietary bioinformatics tools
- Advanced tools and automation for performance-testing of enzymes
- Data analysis using machine learning tools that correlate sequence and function
- Managing risk and expectations of solving increasingly challenging problems
