664 Protein Engineering I: Combinatorial Techniques

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
151A/B (Salt Palace Convention Center)

The focus of this session is to reflect the latest advances in combinatorial and experimental techniques in protein engineering. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, (1) development of high throughput screen/selection for protein engineering, (2) development of novel protein engineering methods, (3) protein engineering via directed evolution, and (4) successful application of protein engineering methods to solve new/interesting problems.
