Efforts to design novel protein catalysts have typically involved modifying naturally occurring proteins for a new purpose. But the resulting proteins are often less than ideal. Now, David Baker of the University of Washington, Seattle; Gaetano T. Montelione of Rutgers University, Piscataway; and coworkers have developed guidelines for designing proteins from the ground up with results that are close to ideal (Nature, DOI: . . .
