This short course will describe many aspects of heterologous expression in E.coli, from choice of construct design through to methods to improve levels of soluble expression and co-expression. In addition we will also describe expression in Eukaryotic hosts, including secreted proteins and ECDs, and options for co-expression. The course will finish with a discussion and problem solving session using examples brought along by the attendees.
