Biotech drug research. Researcher holding a flask containing therapeutic proteins extracted from a transgenic tobacco plant. The plant had been genetically engineered to produce a protein for the pharmaceutical industry. Producing therapeutic proteins in crops is much cheaper than producing them in microorganisms or mammalian cells that require technology-heavy support for growth. Photographed at Meristem, France.
