Enzyme engineering

Fraaije works on ‘enzyme engineering’ – improving natural molecular machines, enzymes, to make them suitable for use in industry. Fraaije studies the structure of these large proteins and looks for ways to improve them. Within the European research project ROBOX, his research group creates enzymes to be used in industrial processes.
