De Novo Design of Enzymatic Function

Design of a novel catalytic function in proteins and peptides, apart from its inherent practical value, is important for fundamental understanding of enzymatic activity. We will present applications of a computationally inexpensive, minimalistic approach to design of artificial enzymes.

Two representative cases will be discussed.
