The conference theme, “Predictable Protein Performance,” will bring industry experts from around the world to discuss different aspects of this important topic. Conference speakers will explore why analyzing protein expression, structure, and function is key to any biological discovery and also outline strategies that researchers can take to ensure that the protein in their tubes accurately represents its native form, in its physiological context.
Virtual Conference participants will learn how to maximize the information that can be obtained from each precious protein sample, no matter how complex or challenging it might be. They will also have the opportunity to consult with experts about their research, as well as download data, abstracts, videos, and scientific articles from EMD Millipore’s Resource Library.
