Welcome to the KBC Core Facility - The Protein Expertise Platform (PEP)!
The Protein Expertise Platform (PEP) is a strong environment at the Chemical Biological Center (KBC), at Umeå University. The PEP provides researchers with needed services and expert advice in questions of bioinformatics, cloning, growth optimization and protein purification. The PEP keeps stocks of over 20 different ready to use cloning vectors (containing a variety of fusion proteins and purification tags) designed to improve protein expression levels and to facilitate protein purification. In addition, the PEP provides about 10 different strains of competent E.coli bacteria ready for transformation, as well as various antibiotics and different proteases that are commonly used during protein purification.
