To add to the depth of knowledge of protein crystallization by finding ways to optimize the process. By changing temperature, humidity, or pH, the growth of protein crystals can be improved. With this in mind, it is our hope develop solubility curves for a unique protein to further the understanding of the topic. Currently, scientists know how to crystallize proteins with multiple steps but we are taking the responsibility of developing a simplified process.
Currently, we are on the move with research, pulling together resources such as lab space, and coordinating logistics outside of Calvin’s walls. Our next move is to implement a crystallization experiment to build a basis, and then move into uncharted waters.
