Human Vaccine

When edible vaccines were first attempted to produce, researchers played on the idea of utilizing transgenic plants as a bioreactor especially for large-scale production. Plant-based edible vaccines are easier to handle, do not require complicated storage, and provide a cheaper alternative to vaccine production.

Some of the commonly used transgenic plants as a bioreactor include tobacco, potato, tomato, corn, and rice. Also, transgenic plants have been used to produce bacterial vaccines, viral vaccines, parasite vaccines, and immuno-contraceptive vaccines.
