Synthetic Biology Breakthrough Paves the Way for Cheaper Vaccines (SciTechDaily)

"These so-called adjuvants are added in small quantities but have a big protective effect, particularly in infants with immature immune systems and older people with a declining immune response... Producing compounds like this in yeast is not only cheaper, but more environmentally friendly, avoiding many of the caustic and toxic chemicals needed to extract the compound from plants."
