A Yale research team led by Jesse Rinehart and their colleagues at Northwestern University has improved ways to use genetically recoded organisms to produce a host of valuable new protein products that may pave the way for improved cancer drugs. The findings build upon prior work by Yale team member Farren Isaacs who successfully recoded the genome of a strain of E. coli bacteria.
