PoLoPo

Developing a plant platform for high-scale, custom-made production of proteins.
Using directed metabolic engineering, we create a “superAA” plant. The superAA is able to produce considerable high amounts of free amino acids. The elevated production of amino acids is then translated into high-scale production of proteins. In the second phase, we use superAA plants as the basic plants for the creation of a new set of plants, expressing and accumulating the target proteins in plant sink organs.
PoLoPo is a biotech startup developing an economical platform for high scale production of proteins in plants.
