Question

Explain how engineers and scientists may work together to produce a protein in the lab.

2 Answer

  • the scientists would do biological studies of how the protein breakdown and combines with the muscles the engineers with then create a delivery system to get the protein to the muscle quicker and more effectively
  • Scientists would deal with the aspect of cloning a particular gene into a bacterium or making of hybridoma cells that will produce the particular required protein. Engineers will then design and develop a bioreactor which is a programmed instrument that avails the required substances to the cells/bacteria in specific amounts and at particular time periods to grow and reproduce the cells in large amounts.
