Improvement of the catalytic properties of biological catalysts is important both in the optimization of industrial processes and in understanding catalytic machinery at the molecular level. The approaches taken are diverse from purely result-oriented, but nevertheless methodologically subtle, making and screening of combinatorial libraries to highly sophisticated tailoring of the environment of active sites. This volume illustrates four different concepts for modifying a biocatalyst framework and illustrates how to create novel functions using Nature's basic building blocks. Summing up the state-of-the-art in biocatalyst engineering, this volume is a platform for the specialist and non-expert alike to keep abreast of developments in this rapidly evolving field.
