Engineering for Health
Assistant Professor Blaine Pfeifer and colleagues from MIT have now engineered E. coli bacteria to produce large quantities of a critical compound that is a precursor to the cancer drug Taxol. The procedure described in the Oct. 1 issue of Science magazine, could bring down the manufacturing costs of Taxol and also help scientists discover potential new drugs for cancer.
