Mark Pearson, director of molecular biology for Du Pont, has observed this in
action: "When I was a graduate student back in the 1950s, it was a multiyear
problem to determine the molecular structure of a single protein. We used to say, '
The genetic-engineering industry is chiefly in the business of reprogramming
natural nanomachines, the ribo- somes, to make new proteins or to make familiar
proteins more cheaply. Designing new proteins is termed protein engineering.
Without solving the classic protein-folding problem, they have begun to solve the
protein-design problem. What Has Been Accomplished So Far? Bill DeGrado
and his colleagues at Du Pont had one of the first successes: "We've been able to
