Upcoming Global Web Symposia
December 8, 201112:30 pm – 2:00 pm EST
Symposium Course Description: The origins of the yeast Pichia pastoris will be discussed along with the logic and research that lead to its eventual development as a host for the production of recombinant proteins. Recent advances in vectors and host strains for its use will be presented. An example of its use, the cloning and expression of a full-length chimeric humanized monoclonal antibody, will be presented.
Learning Objective Bullet Points:
Who Should Attend: Researchers of all levels from B.A. to Ph.D. interested in synthesizing recombinant proteins.
