Bacterial expression Details

Bacterial hosts are hosts of choice for the production of recombinant proteins and protein complexes. This is largely due to the ease of handling and genetically modifying these hosts. In addition, the short doubling time of bacteria enables fast production of samples using parallelised and robotised approaches. Furthermore, the large biomass and high expression yields that can be obtained with bacterial hosts generally enables the production of sufficient amounts of samples for structural studies.
