Peter B. Sherry Lecture

Computational Design of New Enzymes

There are enzymes for every biological reaction, but can we create enzymes for reactions that are not involved in life?  One of Feynman's famous quotes is relevant: "What I cannot create, I do not understand." In the context of this lecture, if we really understand enzymes, we should be able to create new ones. Such an achievement could also have considerable practical significance.  Progress toward designing and synthesizing enzymes for non-natural reactions will be describedSchool Colloquium
