Cell Line and Systems Engineering track banner


The complexity of biotherapeutics and the increasing demands of “faster, better, more economical” resonate with recombinant protein expression and production researchers. To meet these goals, protein scientists are exploring new engineering tools. However, many variables still must be considered during the engineering process, including verification and sequence analysis of the gene or protein, codon optimisation, vector construction, and clone/host selection. Ultimately, these tools must be weighed against traditional expression and production strategies to achieve the desired quantity and quality.

The Cell Line and Systems Engineering program features effective engineering strategies for protein expression and production research that lead to functional protein products. Learn from seasoned, savvy researchers as they share their real-world experiences, applications, and results.

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


Genome Engineering

  • CRISPR/Cas9
