Computational Design (IMAGE) University of Ottawa Caption Computational enzyme design aims to create a catalytic site for a chemical reaction of interest into an inert protein scaffold. This is done by optimizing the position and interactions between a theoretical enzyme ('theozyme') and an ensemble of protein templates. This method has the potential to create a highly active artificial enzyme.
