Algentech’s disruptive technology was published on June 21, 2021 in the journal Nature Plants https://doi.org/10.1038/s41477-021-00940-y). The process patented by Algentech makes it possible to produce high levels of proteins and nucleic acids in plant chloroplasts. A technological breakthrough of prime interest for many industrial sectors, in search of sustainable bio-based production platforms. The journal Nature Plants published on June 21st the process patented by Algentech. The paper describes for the first time a self-contained expression system in the form of minichromosomes that have the ability to self-replicate in chloroplasts. The method does not require the integration of genes of interest into the chloroplas
t genome and generates a high level of expression of nucleic acids and proteins.
