The complexity of biotherapeutics and the increasing demands of “faster, better, more economical” resonate with recombinant protein expression and production researchers. To meet these goals, protein scientists are exploring new engineering tools. However, many variables still must be considered during the engineering process, including verification and sequence analysis of the gene or protein, codon optimisation, vector construction and clone/host selection. Ultimately, these tools must be weighed against traditional expression and production strategies to achieve the desired quantity and quality.
