DNA vaccine production. Technicians working with genetically modified (GM) bacteria to produce recombinant hepatitis B vaccine. Traditional hepatitis vaccine contains the full virus, which could potentially become active and infect patients. A recombinant vaccine is made by inserting a piece of DNA from the virus into another organism, such as a bacterium. The viral protein is expressed by the bacterium and purified for use as a vaccine. Because the vaccine only contains a viral protein and not the whole virus, there is no risk of the virus becoming active. Photographed at Shantha Biotechnics in Hyderabad, India.
