Rosetta Green Hits Milestone in Algae-Modification Initiative


Rosetta Green last week announced that it has successfully completed an experiment producing biologically active human growth hormone from algae.

The work was conducted as part of a collaborative effort funded by the European Commission focused on the use of genetic modifications to improve algae for industrial applications (GSN 7/28/2011).

Through the initiative, Rosetta Green is identifying miRNAs that could be used to develop algae that can produce therapeutic human proteins and growth hormone.
