Protein engineering pipelines are currently highly manual, labor intensive, and require skilled professionals. This has parallels to content creation for images and text in the "pre-AI" era. Now, commercial content creation is being revolutionized by end-to-end models (e.g. GPT3, DALL-E, and Stable Diffusion) that generate highly realistic and compelling images directly from textual prompts.
