Billions of years of evolution have proteins that perform incredibly specialized functions. But evolution must take a continuous path. What if, given all we now know about how structure relates to function, we could shortcut evolution and custom-design proteins for our own aims? We can. In this talk, David Baker of the University of Washington's Institute for Protein Design will describe how his group designs and fabricates enzymes, motor proteins, biologics delivery vehicles, and other sophisticated macromolecules from first principles.
