PPS - Protein Production Sweden
PPS is a distributed infrastructure that coordinates expertise, protein production systems, marking methods, protein refinement techniques and a range of services within recombinant protein production.
Proteins are necessary for all processes in living cells, and access to recombinant proteins with an active structure is crucial for many areas of biomedical research. Research fields in chemistry and environmental studies, as well as more applied research within areas such as medicine development, biotechnology and foods, also have great need of high-quality proteins.
PPS has nodes at the University of Gothenburg, Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and Umeå University. The nodes have complementary specialities within different protein production methods, and the coordination means that both expertise and a broad range of techniques become nationally accessible.
