Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 9th Annual

Optimizing Protein Expression
( 蛋白质表现和优化 )

Enhancing Expression Systems



Expression of heterologous proteins presents many challenges and understanding expression systems is key. The 9th annual Optimizing Protein Expression conference delves into protein expression by examining and enhancing expression systems, including CHO and other mammalian systems, E. coli, yeast and baculovirus. What is the best expression system for expressing your protein of choice? Ease and cost of scale-up must be considered to ensure successful bottom-line results. Experts will share case studies and disclose data while divulging details of expression systems’ underlying mechanisms. Comparing and contrasting systems will also be featured to increase understanding in the quest for greater productivity.
