Space Genomics Technical Workshop #2: Protein Crystallization Growth (PCG) Experiments Workshop
The Protein Crystallization Growth (PCG) Experiments Workshop is the second workshop in the Space Genomics Technical Workshops series.
It will outline the basics of a PCG experiment, the benefits of conducting a PCG experiment in microgravity experiment than on Earth, and key technical details to be considered when designing a PCG experiment – such as types of crystallization units for spaceflights. Participants will also gain an understanding of various crystallization methods and how to choose the best method for spaceflight, as well as the different protein characterization methods that could be used to ensure purity during spaceflight. The workshop will end off with a sharing session by a researcher in JAXA’s joint-research PCG experiment and a Q&A session.
