The American company Salesforce Research has developed an artificial intelligence program, ProGen, to transform amino acids into artificial proteins.
As a result of the experiments, enzymes are produced with the same shape and properties as those found in a natural environment.
Scientists say this new technology could become more relevant and important than Directed evolution, an accelerated version of evolution and a Nobel Prize-winning artificial protein development technology.
According to researchers, ProGen has the potential to enhance the development of protein engineering and accelerate the growth of new proteins. "Artificial structures work far better than designs inspired by the evolutionary process," says James Fraser, a professor of bioengineering at the University of California and the developer of this system.
