Cover of highlighted publications

We are experts in protein engineering with a focus on directed evolution approaches and semirational or rational design. Our research includes empirical and computational method development, and the application of the latter to ultimately generate enzyme variants with tailored characteristics. Computational methods further serve to solve structure/function relationships of targeted enzymes. The research output of the group is reflected by over 150 peer-reviewed articles and over 25 filed patents.
