Computational design of novel protein binders and experimental affinity maturation.

Author information

Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan, USA.


Computational design of novel protein binders has recently emerged as a useful technique to study biomolecular recognition and generate molecules for use in biotechnology, research, and biomedicine. Current limitations in computational design methodology have led to the adoption of high-throughput screening and affinity maturation techniques to diagnose modeling inaccuracies and generate high activity binders. Here, we scrutinize this combination of computational and experimental aspects and propose areas for future methodological improvements.
