Industrial-scale plant-based protein production in a cell-free platform

Project description

Lower-cost, industrial-scale protein production for the biotech industry

In the biotech industry, protein-based therapeutics aren't often accessible or affordable, especially when it comes to difficult-to-express (DTE) proteins. With this in mind, the EU-funded PEPPER project aims to make use of a novel proprietary tobacco-based cell-free protein synthesis platform that will meet the current demand for lower-cost DTE proteins in a number of biotechnology sectors. The platform will help the project to scale up protein production capacity and yield to an industrial scale while complying with manufacturing protocols and government regulations for biopharmaceutical proteins. The project will help to make protein-based therapeutics cheaper and more accessible to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
