My research focuses on purifying a specific protein of interest, setting up conditions to grow protein crystals and solving the crystal structure of the protein. Obtaining the crystal structure of any protein speeds up the process in which therapeutic drugs are designed. Currently, we are interested in a protein named LGN... Further details...
