The goals of the HMP are: (1) to take advantage of new, high-throughput technologies to characterize the human microbiome more fully by studying samples from multiple body sites from(More)
The inducible T-REx system and other inducible expression systems have been developed in order to control the expression levels of recombinant protein in mammalian cells. In order to study the effects of heterologous protein expression on mammalian host behavior, the gene for recombinant Human transferrin (hTf) was integrated into HEK-293 cells and(More)
