Chicago Synthetic Antibody Pipeline open for business
Supported by a CBC Lever Award, the Chicago Synthetic Antibody Pipeline (CSAP) is now open to the CBC community. CSAP is a high throughput pipeline designed to produce the next generation of affinity reagents: customized synthetic antibodies (sABs). CBC researchers can nominate protein antigens as targets for sAB generation using existing technology and/or apply for Pilot Projects that will focus on developing ways to extend the applications of the sAB technology.
