ARS researchers are using cutting-edge software to help them create superior phytase enzymes that can change the way livestock digest feed. This, in turn, could greatly reduce phosphorus excretion from animals and phosphorus runoff and pollution after manure is applied to crop land. This 3-D computer-generated image of a phytase molecule enables researchers to make changes to improve the enzyme.
