Creative Biolabs offers customers design and computational strategies for protein engineering to develop proteins of desire properties. We can provide various protein design approaches, including Noncanonical Amino Acids, Design and Synthesis of Artificial Zinc Finger Proteins, computational optimization, selection from combinatorial libraries etc., to meet customers’ specific requirements.
Protein design, as one of the most significant approaches in protein engineering, is the rational design of new protein molecules with novel functions and/or behaviors. Thanks to the great progresses in protein design algorithms, molecular force fields, and structural bioinformatics, computational strategies and tools have been widely used for rational protein engineering (such as design of combinatorial libraries, sequence-function relationship prediction and structure-based molecular modeling). These computational strategies can facilitate the complex calculation on protein flexibility and energetics, and enable searches over huge configuration spaces, which would be otherwise unfeasible to perform manually.
