To Create Protein Outside A Cell For Therapeutics Purpose

According to a new study, scientists have established a new method to produce proteins outside of a cell that could have important implications in therapeutics and biomaterials. The advance could make possible decentralized manufacturing and distribution processes for protein therapeutics that might, in the future, promote better access to costly drugs all over the world. The study was published online in Nature Communications.
