BioXFEL Protein Production and Purification Workshop at UPR-RP

Category: Workshop


BioXFEL Protein Production and Purification Workshop

As you may have guessed, this Workshop has been cancelled. It seems inappropriate to offer this at a time when Puerto Rico needs so much more than a protein workshop. The workshop will be rescheduled for another time in the spring. In the meantime, please stay safe and know that we are thinking of you. 

If you would like more opportunities to work with us, please check out the following programs and events:

  1. Our Summer Internship for undergraduates is now accepting applications.
  2. The 5th Annual International BioXFEL Conference in New Orleans, February 13th to 15th .
  3. Our Annual Conference Travel Scholarship helps underserved groups attend the conference. If you want to go to the conference, you should apply.
  4. You may also be eligible for the BioXFEL URM Fellowship program that supports graduate students’ research at their home Universities.


The NSF BioXFEL Science and Technology Center will be sponsoring a workshop on October 12th, 2017 for all interested UPR researchers. The full day course will cover the basics of the biochemistry, cloning, expression and purification of proteins. We will discuss the theory behind common techniques as well as provide examples, sample materials, and a handbook of common protocols. This workshop is intended for undergraduates or graduate students that are interested in pursuing a research career in biochemistry or a related field and are currently involved in a research project.

 Tenative Schedule:

9:00-9:30 Overview of the Workshop and BioXFEL Center
9:30-10:30 Introduction to Protein Biochemistry
10:30-11:00 Q + A, Demonstrations
11:00-12:00 Introduction to Common Cloning Techniques
12:00-12:30 Q + A, Demonstrations
