In an intimate, small group laboratory setting, learn the details of protein purification from an expert. Join Professor William Ward as he leads you through the step-by-step purification of a model protein, hands-on from start to finish. Under his constant supervision, you will prepare a crude extract, administer several batch purification steps, and then achieve purity in a series of high resolution chromatography steps. You will then judge purity of the final product in comparison with your crude extract by calculating specific activity and by analyzing your product by size exclusion HPLC and/or SDS gel electrophoresis.
As you assist in setting up equipment, carrying out experiments, and analyzing results, you will have many opportunities to benefit from Professor Wardâ€™s extensive experience as a long-time, practicing protein biochemist.
