Directed evolution of proteins and nucleic acids using nonhomologous random recombination

The nonhomologous random recombination (NRR) method allows portions of nucleic acids to be recombined at sites where there is little or no sequence homology. This increases the frequency at which novel sequences are generated, allowing a more…
