Optimizing the search algorithm for protein engineering by directed evolution.


An in silico protein model based on the Kauffman NK-landscape, where N is the number of variable positions in a protein and K is the degree of coupling between variable positions, was used to compare alternative search strategies for directed evolution. A simple genetic algorithm (GA) was used to model the performance of a standard DNA shuffling protocol… (More)
