Project Details

Project Description

We seek to establish a world class high-throughput (H-T) protein production unit, the first of its kind in Australia. Throughout the unit robotic technology will be used to build and test protein expression systems as well as drive large scale protein production. The product of the unit will be high quality, pure protein, effective expression systems and world class research. The unit will act as a centre for research into H-T protein expression technology, will underpin the finest biological research, provide the basis for large 'structural genomic type approaches to biological problems and provide a wealth of projects for the Australian synchrotron.
