Researchers Create Artificial Cell Organelles for Biotechnology

Submitted by sbnormand on November 13, 2020 - 01:30 PM

Biotechnologists have been attempting to reprogram natural cell organelles for other processes for some time—with mixed results. A researcher at the Institute for Molecular Biosciences has now developed a new method to produce artificial organelles in living yeast cells. This is significant in that yeast cells produce many useful natural substances, and can also be genetically altered to produce industrial molecules on a grand scale, such as biofuels or anti-malaria drugs.
