Trends in Synthetic Biology: Antibody Engineering from thescientistllc on Vimeo.
As the body’s circulating army of first responders, antibodies recognize and destroy foreign and potentially disease-causing pathogens. The engineering of synthetic antibody forms and conjugates has produced a whole new arsenal of tools for applications in research, diagnostics, and therapeutics. Forward-engineering approaches create new recognition sites and molecular functions for antibody products to accurately and efficiently detect previously undetectable molecular targets with an increased response lifetime. For a closer look at the fastest growing class of synthetic therapeutics, The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to share their research, discuss current design and optimization approaches, and to offer insight on the future outlook of antibody engineering. Join us as these experts share best practices and tips for optimally engineered antibodies.
Topics to be covered:
- Producing more and better antibodies
- Designing your antibodies for optimal effect
