Porton Biopharma Ltd are interested in exploring plant-based recombinant expression systems for suspension cell cultures. Plant cell expression provides an original and potentially low-cost system for the production of biotherapeutics. Oxford Brookes University has expertise and facilities for plant cell culture, including several cell types, transformation vectors and technology, and the ability to study protein expression and targeting.
