NOW OPEN: The expression plasmids for all 29 proteins encoded by the COVID-19 virus are available for request
date: 2020-06-22

Scientists all over the world are working day and night to find COVID-19 cure. Studies on the 29 proteins encoded by the COVID-19 virus genome are critical for this urgent task. However, it usually takes weeks or months to have the virus-encoded proteins over expressed and purified for research in the labs. Now, expression plasmids for all these 29 proteins are available to global scientists through a Protein Bank Program (PBP) launched by the National Facility for Protein Science in Shanghai (NFPS). NFPS is the first large-scale comprehensive facility for protein science in China. As PBP’s first step to help global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, expression plasmids for all 29 COVID-19 proteins are open for request from June 17 on. NFPS will extend the resources sharing to proteins and antibodies later on.
