Together with Creative Biomart, Creative Biolabs is a leader in applying directed molecular evolution to improving healthcare by discovering, optimizing and developing human biotherapeutics.
Mutation, selection, reproduction, repeat for millions of generations—every biologist is familiar with how evolution has resulted in the incredible diversity and adaptations found in the natural world. Directed evolution uses a similar strategy to create biomolecules for use in diverse fields spanning industrial production, medical science, and basic research. The crucial difference is that, with directed evolution, results can be achieved much more quickly, in many cases with just a few rounds of mutagenesis and selection.
In vitro molecular evolution strategies (as shown in the figure) are widely regarded as the most efficient methods for creating proteins and regulatory sequences with improved or novel properties. Creative Biolabs GenePowerTM Directed Evolution services cover a variety of different approaches for creating genetic variants. Paired with appropriate screening methods, our directed evolution technologies can create the genetic diversity you need to obtain proteins with the characteristics you need.
