This chapter describes the step-by-step methods employed by the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC) for screening and producing proteins in the BacMam system. This eukaryotic expression system was selected and a screening process established in 2016 to enable production of highly challenging human integral membrane proteins (IMPs), which are a significant component of our target list. Here, we discuss our recently developed platform for identifying expression and monodispersity of IMPs from 3 mL of HEK293 cells.
