In this animation produced by WGBH and Digizyme, Inc., we learn how protein purification separates and isolates a protein of interest from other contents of transformed bacterial cells that have undergone lysis. The animation explains the steps involved in a technique called hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC), which ultimately yields a solution that is highly enriched with the protein of interest.
