Breaking the rules of protein synthesis in living systems
The rich biodiversity of life and complexity of life’s important processes come from proteins, molecular machines that grant a living system its variety of abilities.
These proteins which constitute life are almost exclusively created from the same 20 chemical building blocks. Also, these building blocks are again dictated by the same set of instructions – the genetic code.
Imagine the potential that another 10 new chemical building blocks could grant to life’s variety of abilities; could we perhaps endow living systems with new abilities that nature herself cannot currently evolve?
