Synthetic Biology Meets Fashion in Engineered Silk – Lab Manager Magazine

by admin

30-second summary:
Scientists have created “engineered silk” using synthetic biology, which could be used in the fashion industry. The process involves producing large quantities of silk protein using genetically modified yeast cells. The silk then goes through a spinning process to create fibers that can be woven into fabric. The resulting material has improved strength and elasticity compared to traditional silk. The team hopes that their innovation can lead to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion industry by using fewer resources and reducing waste.
