I'm interested in how gil and ba77 will approach this, since they assume the designer is god. They obviously have no problem with infinite resources.
I once argued with gpuccio that design is impossible without evolution, because no finite resource can predict protein folding in less time than folding itself.
He asserted there had to be some structure to folding that would provide a shortcut.
In the absence of evidence I doubt there will be a look up table for functional sequences that is smaller than the number of particles in the universe
That, of course, ignores the minor matter of regulation, and the ecological problems encountered and requiring adaptation.
