abstract
Escherichia Coli bacteria are model organisms in modern day microbiology. They are easy to manipulate and control, exhibit rapid development with short life cycles, and are readily available. E. coli bacteria are commonly used for gene expression of protein motifs for research. Using E. coli bacteria, synthetic spider silk proteins were expressed. After expression the proteins were extracted and purified. The purity and presence of the protein was established by Western Blot analysis.
