Abstract:
This year, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to three pioneering scientists who applied laboratory evolution for protein engineering: Frances Arnold, George P. Smith, and Sir Gregory P. Winter. This approach has had major impact in various applications and inspires the search for the general principles of design through evolution.
