High-throughput genetic screens can produce large data sets that a give a system-level understanding of regulatory networks. They require standardization and optimization of data generation and analysis workflows. This is how one research group overcame issues and successfully automated this process.
In order to optimize an expression vector, it is necessary to properly balance transcription, translation, and plasmid copy number. Maximizing the yield of a biomanufaturing process requires experts to finely tune these control parameters.
In order to produce a protein array, a team needed to automate the process of cloning 1000 genes amplified from genomic DNA of a plant pathogen.
