Research output: Patent


Disclosed is a method for producing a mutant gene encoding a functional gene product comprising: (a) introducing one or more mutations into a gene to form a mutated gene; (b) providing the mutated gene to a host microorganism; (c) culturing the host microorganism containing the mutated gene under conditions which allow expression of the mutant gene product; (d) sorting the host bacteria by flow cytometry and (e) obtaining a combined pool of mutated genes encoding functional enzymes.
