Industrial Application Show Me The Money

Industrial applications of recombinant DNA technology include manufacturing protein products by the use of bacteria, fungi, and cultured mammal cells. The pharmaceutical industry is producing several medically important polypeptides using biotechnology. An example is bacteria that metabolize petroleum and other toxic materials. These bacteria are constructed by assembling catabolic genes on a single plasmid and then transforming the appropriate organism. Another example is vaccines. The hepatitis B vaccine is made up of viral protein manufactured by yeast cells, which have been recombined with viral particles.
