Protein expression and protein purification is an art of science and technology. Each protein is unique and needs special treatment. This intensive practical course is dedicated to the current technology and processes available to obtain a pure sample of protein using recombinant DNA techniques, combined with biotechnology of protein production and purification. The course covers cloning and overexpression in bacterial and eukaryotic systems, introduction to fermentation, protein purification and biophysical characterization.
Protein production technology:
i) Recombinant protein technology and fermetation
ii) Protein purification
The objective of the course is to give the students theoretical and practical insight into protein production technologies.
