Making enzymes more effective

Ars scientists Mullaney and Ullah at the southern regional research centre (SRRC) have rebuilt the enzyme phytase to make it more effective, especially in the unique environment where it needs to perform, like cold temperatures or extreme acidity.

This means less potential nutrient waste and pollution. By Erin k.
