Artificially expanded genetic alphabet evolves enzymes for the first time

Artificially expanded genetic alphabet evolves enzymes for the first time

An artificially extended DNA alphabet developed enzymes for the first time. The work, which added two synthetic building blocks to DNA’s usual four to create a library of molecules, demonstrates how these libraries could offer improved chemical diversity over standard DNA for finding relevant biomedical molecules, as well only clues to how life began. As …
