Welcome to part two of “What Can NMR Do For You?”, a three-part series in which we see how you can use simple NMR experiments in your research. In part one, we went over some key points to keep in mind when doing NMR on proteins and DNA, such as sample preparation, and saw how…

Turn That Frown Upside Down! or, How to Publish Your Negative Results

By Jennifer Cable | April 11, 2012

There are six little words that can instill both excitement and trepidation in the heart of a graduate student: “No one’s ever done this before.” What those words really mean, of course, is “No one’s ever published this before,” and you are either standing at the edge of a great discovery or a chasm of…

How to Design the Perfect Protein Purification Buffer

How to Design the Perfect Protein Purification Buffer

By Jennifer Cable | November 3, 2011

When purifying a protein, it’s important to keep your protein happy. If you are going to use the protein in binding and activity assays, such as the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technique, then your protein needs to be soluble and active. For success in these experiments, it is crucial that you create a buffer that…
