Research Background and Current Trends

Protein engineering has its roots in the early 1970s when scientists began altering the amino acid sequences of proteins. Since then, it has evolved significantly. Today, protein engineering and optimization research have expanded into numerous domains:

  • Computational Approaches. Advanced machine learning techniques enable more accurate predictions of protein folding patterns and interactions, enhancing the efficiency of de novo protein design.
  • Enzyme Engineering. Increasingly comprehensive structural databases provide a wealth of information for protein designers to derive insights and inspiration.
  • Therapeutic Protein Optimization. Researchers are exploring the simultaneous optimization of multiple protein characteristics, such as stability, binding affinity, and catalytic activity.
  • Protein Design for Materials Science. Creating novel materials with unique properties through protein-based approaches.
