Better protein capture a boon for drug manufacturers

Rice University scientists have created a way to fine-tune a process critical to the pharmaceutical industry that could save a lot of time and money.

A combination of the Rice technique that provides pinpoint locations for single proteins and a theory that describes those proteins’ interactions with other molecules could widen a bottleneck in the manufacture of drugs by making the process of isolating proteins five times more efficient
