The demand for high-quality proteins for basic research, diagnostics, and therapy continues to exponentially expand.  Thus, higher-throughput protein expression, production, and purification as well as more flexible expression platforms and techniques are necessary to meet the demands for both research and manufacturing pipelines. Throughout the week, the Biotherapeutic Expression & Production pipeline explores the newest data, innovations, and strategies to make the expression and production of these valuable proteins more efficient, effective, and trouble-free.
