1 V National Conference BIFI, Zaragoza, Febrero 2011 OLGA ABIAN OVERVIEW OF EXPERIMENTAL FACILITIES AT BIFI-BIO

2 V National Conference BIFI, Zaragoza, Febrero 2011 Molecular Biology: Genetic engineering and recombinant proteins (cloning, mutagenesis, recombinant proteins expression with biotechnology or biomedical interest). Biochemistry: Proteins and nucleic acids purification using Fast Performance Liquid Chromatography, ionic exchange, affinity or molecular exclusion columns. Small protein or chemical compounds purification. Biophysics of Biological Molecules: Characterization of protein stability, protein-protein and protein ligand interaction, and protein function. Cell Biology: Prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell culture for the expression of recombinant proteins, determination of the efficacy and toxicity of bioactive compounds and apoptosis studies. Stem cell cultures for cellular differentiation and dead cell studies. High Throughput Screening (HTS): Screening methods for experimental identification of bioactive compounds against pharmacologic targets. Crystallography: Obtaining crystallographic models of proteins: preparation of crystals, analysis by X ray diffraction, data processing and molecular structure resolution. GENERAL AREAS OR ACTIVITIES PERFORM AT BIFI FACILITIES
