Upstream Decisions Lead to Downstream Successes

The demand for high quality biotherapeutic proteins has never been greater, yet meeting this demand is challenging because protein expression is both an art
and a science. Bottlenecks frequently arise because functional proteins are difficult to produce. This usually requires designing new cloning schemes including
lengthy verification and sequence analysis of the gene or protein of interest, moving a gene from one vector to another, transfecting the vector in an alternative
host, or re-characterizing the expressed protein --an inefficient, time-consuming and expensive process. This meeting continues the tradition of applying effective
protein discovery research leading to functional products.
