A novel method for developing low cost proteins for use in SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and assays

A CITF-funded study published in PLoS One, led by Drs. Marc-André Langlois and Allyson MacLean (University of Ottawa), demonstrated that agroinfiltration, a method to generate proteins in plants, could be used to produce the receptor binding domain (RBD) of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.
