Expanding market demands for biopharmaceuticals has led to development of various platforms that could efficiently and effectively address product yield and quality requirements. Currently, production of biopharmaceuticals has relied mainly on mammalian-based cell culture and microbial fermentation. Molecular farming is an emerging field of biotechnology that utilizes plants as a platform for large-scale production of biopharmaceuticals. It consists of many expression systems including cultivation of transgenic plants in fields, transient expression by agroinfiltration of plants or virus-infected plants, in vitro culture of plant tissues or organs, and plant cell suspension culture – all of which have been explored as an economical alternative bioproduction platform.
