Bacteria can Manufacture High-Performance Proteins, like Spider Silk, for Space Missions

Bacteria can Manufacture High-Performance Proteins, like Spider Silk, for Space Missions

Researchers developed a new technique that could produce difficult-to-make proteins, like spider silk, by taking advantage of engineered bacteria. The mechanical properties of some of the natural, protein-based substances put them in the same bracket as the best synthetic materials. The research presented at the American Chemical Society (ACS) on 2nd April 2019 explained that…
