What the technology does
In vitro compartmentalisation for selection and evolution of phenotype
Water-in-oil emulsion links genotype to phenotype, allowing for high throughput screening of phenotype, e.g. screening for enzymes with desired characteristics.
Main application field
Directed evolution of enzymes with desired characteristics
Established technique, ready to be used
