Course Overview

Western blot-based protein analysis remains the go-to experiment to assess a protein’s expression level or posttranslational modifications. Despite its popularity, it is difficult to obtain a reproducible, publication-ready western blot, and researchers often face a long-winded optimization process when starting a new experiment with a different antibody or tissue type.

In this Technique Talk, Aldrin Gomes will reveal tried-and-true techniques for transforming blurry protein gels into crisp, reproducible western blots.

Learning Objectives

  • How to prepare protein lysates for high-quality western blot results
  • Common pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • Tips to detect low abundance proteins accurately and reproducibly
  • How to obtain publication-ready images

  • Tuesday, July 12, 2022

    3:00 – 4:00 PM Eastern Time

    This webinar will also be available on-demand.
