Abstract Protein engineering through directed evolution facilitates the screening and characterization of protein libraries. Efficient and effective methods for multiple site-saturation mutagenesis, such as Darwin Assembly, can accelerate the sampling of relevant sequence space and the identification of variants with desired functionalities. Here, we present the automation of the Darwin Assembly method, using a Gilson PIPETMAX™ liquid handling platform under the control of the Antha software platform, which resulted in the accelerated construction of complex, multiplexed gene libraries with minimal hands-on time and error-free, while maintaining flexibility over experimental parameters through a graphical user interface rather than requiring user-driven library-dependent programming of the liquid handling platform. We also present an approach for barcoding libraries that overcomes amplicon length limitations in next generation sequencing and enables fast reconstruction of library reads.
