Introduction to Protein Footprinting
September 23, 2020



Webinar Description:

This 60-minute webinar provides an overarching review of and instruction in the theory behind protein footprinting techniques and applications. Receive instruction in the various benchtop covalent modification approaches as well as rapid labeling techniques such as X-ray synchrotron and Fast Photo-Oxidation of Protein (FPOP) hydroxyl radical protein foot-printing (HRPF). Examine the practical implications to applied research in biopharmaceutical research, protein interaction, biosimilar development, epitope mapping, paratope mapping, ligand-binding, drug-protein interaction, and conformational change analysis.
