BY TYLER JOSEPHSON and RALPH L. HOUSE, an article in May 2013 issue of the EFRC Newsletter: “Numerous experimental and computational techniques are used to design better catalysts, but in many cases, we were beaten long ago by nature, which has been refining catalysts for life-sustaining reactions for billions of years”. The article features research on BISfuel-led studies of an artificial enzyme designed using insight from natural enzymes found in hydrogen-producing bacteria.
