Project description

Recombinant protein production is a cornerstone of molecular life science, and a key enabling technology for biotechnological applications. Eukaryotic protein secretion is preferred. In this project, we will generate experimental secretability data on hundreds of thousands of protein (domain)fragments in yeast. This methodology allows us to investigate the influence of the
secretory signal and the chaperones on productive folding.
