Published: 29 September, 2021 | Volume 5 - Issue 1 | Pages: 049-050

One of the major challenges for vaccine producing companies is having favourable conditions for efficient expression system for living organisms in order to produce biologicals. Several companies across the globe looking for several alternative sources for better yield through efficient expression based system.
