Boosting the protein production in cyanobacteria

Researchers modify DNA to improve protein production in cyanobacteria.

Cyanobacteria are a type of unicellular organisms that can utilize sunlight and synthesize their food. Their ability to carry out photosynthesis makes them excellent candidates in the field of biotechnology for the production of desired chemicals and proteins. To kick-start this process, scientists use ̳promoters‘, which are the parts of DNA from suitable organisms, including cyanobacteria, that dictate the production of the required protein.
