Thursday, November 24, 2011, Scobel (broadcasting on 3 Sat TV; in German)
A new chemistry of life is emerging. Professor Nediljko Budisa, a biochemist at the Berlin Institute of Technology/ Technical University of Berlin is a visionary. He says: "My scientific goal is very simple. I want to change the genetic code. Nothing more and nothing less" Budisa wants to change biomolecules chemically so that proteins with novel properties emerge. The first tests have already succeeded; it not only about the understanding the chemistries of life, but also to find out the opportunities to put them into industrial processes.
