The coming of age of de novo protein design

  title={The coming of age of de novo protein design},
  author={Po-Ssu Huang and Scott E. Boyken and David Baker},
There are 20200 possible amino-acid sequences for a 200-residue protein, of which the natural evolutionary process has sampled only an infinitesimal subset. De novo protein design explores the full sequence space, guided by the physical principles that underlie protein folding. Computational methodology has advanced to the point that a wide range of structures can be designed from scratch with atomic-level accuracy. Almost all protein engineering so far has involved the modification of… CONTINUE READING
