Protera is advancing the science of protein engineering to address critical challenges in food, agriculture, the environment, and human health. We’re optimizing the full protein engineering process, from design to testing and development.
Proteins remain a fascinating challenge. Many times more complex than DNA, proteins are based on 20 amino acid building blocks. Random construction of a 100 amino acid length protein would have 20100possibilities. This is more atoms than exist in the known universe!
Our technology is able to “zoom in” on useful protein structures enabling new products: Today: Unparalleled texture enhancers in the food industry. Tomorrow, more solutions to unlock the future of food.
