Unleashing the Power of Synthetic Proteins

Published today in Science Philanthropy Alliance,  David Baker, Director of the Institute for Protein Design describes how the opportunities for computational protein design are endless — with new research frontiers and a huge variety of practical applications to be explored, from medicine to energy to technology.

This is an exciting time as we are undergoing a technological revolution in protein design—rather than simply tweaking proteins that have come through the evolutionary process, we are becoming able to design new proteins from scratch to solve current challenges.
