CESG Technology Dissemination Reports (Protein Production Protocols)

The Center for Eukaryotic Structural Genomics (CESG) was a specialized research center supported by the Protein Structure Initiative (PSI) of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), one of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) from 2001-2010. CESG was housed within the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Madison, WI) and also the Department of Biochemistry at the Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, WI). CESG developed new methods and technologies to address unique eukaryotic bottlenecks and disseminated its methodologies and experimental results to the scientific community worldwide.

Here's a list of technology dissemination reports:

  1. Sesame Laboratory Information Management for Structural Genomics
