  journal={Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology},
Directed evolution has emerged as a key technology to generate enzymes with new or improved properties that are of major importance to the biotechnology industry. A directed evolution approach starts with the identification of a target enzyme to be optimized and the cloning of the corresponding gene. An efficient expression system is needed before the target gene is subjected to random mutagenesis and/or in vitro recombination, thereby creating molecular diversity. Subsequently, improved enzyme… CONTINUE READING
