July 2010

Special

Introduction
Ward Smith and Peter Preusch introduce a series of articles highlighting the achievements of the PSI 2005-2010.

 

Cloning techniques
PSI centers highlight their cloning successes.

 

Expression and purification
Generation of stable, purified protein is an essential step in the protein production pathway.

 

Protein crystallization
From automated pipelines to equipment for traditional labs, the PSI has begun to unblock the crystallization bottleneck.

 

Protein crystallography
The PSI centers have significantly increased the rate of protein structure determination by advancing and automating many of the experimental and computational steps.

 

NMR spectroscopy
Protein NMR structures can now be solved in days rather than weeks or months.
