Molecular Farming

For centuries, plants are serving as a natural source of pharmaceutical lead compounds. However, during the last decades, also interest in plants as heterologous expression system has significantly increased, especially for the production of pharmacological important proteins. New advances in biotechnology make it possible to turn plants into protein producing ‘factories’ and production of therapeutic proteins in plants is a safer, efficient and cost-effective method.

We are using tobacco plants as production system for different types of proteins.
