Picking Up The Pace Of Evolution

Phage-assisted continuous evolution churns out biomolecules in a fraction of the time of previous methods
Department: Science & Technology
Keywords: directed evolution, proteins, natural selection, bacteriophage

Harvard University’s David R. Liu and coworkers reported this year a system for carrying out the directed evolution of biomolecules in a fraction of the time of previous methods (C&EN, April 18, page 7; Nature, DOI: 10.1038/nature09929). Called phage-assisted continuous evolution (PACE), the technique could help scientists in their quest to evolve proteins or RNA . . .
