Biocatalysts are the most proficient biological macromolecules produced by living organisms, offering more competitive processes as compared to chemical catalysts (Choi et al., 2015). These are basically proteins that speed up chemical reactions and may cause transfer of electrons or functional groups to produce a specific biochemical reaction. They are responsible for all important chemical inter-conversions that are required to sustain life (Gurung et al., 2013). Applications of tailor-made biocatalysts with desired properties in different industries have surged in recent times due to the development of recombinant technology, protein engineering and their computational designing.
