gies (Table 1), which link protein to gene by putting proteins on the outer surface of viral particles or cells, or by physically linking mRNA to protein in cell-free systems. In a process called directed evolution, protein libraries are screened for desired activity; the best of the lot are collected and modified in hopes of further improvements… CONTINUE READING
