protein engineering: new approaches and applications. A joint Biochemical Society / Protein Society conference

Protein engineering continues to prove pivotal in progressing our fundamental understanding of how natural proteins fold and function, paving the way for exploitation outside their natural biological context. This Focused Meeting will explore the many new approaches and tools that are currently revolutionising the field.


Computational protein engineering
Directed evolution
Constructing functional biocatalysts
Synthetic biology from the bottom up
Engineering protein-protein interfaces
