the alteration of DNA to encode the synthesis of new proteins that perform new functions. DNA is made of only four nucleotides, in varying sequences, so it can be modified more easily than can proteins, which are difficult to alter using standard chemical means. Protein engineering was the basis for a Nobel prize in 1994.
