The field of molecular farming has experienced something of a rollercoaster ride since its inception two and a half decades ago realization of the potential for molecular farming followed quickly after the development of technologies in the 1980s to introduce recombinant dna into plants, with a. Tarinejad alireza and rahimi esfanjani nader (october 21st 2015) molecular farming in plants, plants for the future hany el-shemy, intechopen, doi: 105772/60757 available from: tarinejad alireza and rahimi esfanjani nader (october 21st 2015) molecular farming in plants, plants for the future. Molecular farming in plants will only realize its huge potential if these constraints are removed through rigorous and detailed science-based studies in the past decade, plant-based expression systems have emerged as a serious competitive force in the large-scale production of recombinant proteins. Plant molecular farming, also known as biopharming, takes the healing potential of plants to a whole new level plants have been used to make medicine for centuries however, prior to the emergence of plant biotechnology, drugs were extracted or derived from the plant itself.
Pharming is also known as molecular farming, molecular pharming or biopharming  the products of pharming are recombinant proteins or their metabolic products. Plant molecular farming is the production of valuable proteins, peptides and small molecules through the use of plant biotechnology it was 1989 when molecular farming burst onto the cover of nature with andy hiatt's monoclonal antibody expression in plants paper, alerting the world to a very new potential of plants. Plant molecular farming is the use of ge-netically modified plants to produce pharmaceutical products or industrial chemicals these plants with novel traits.
Why molecular farming molecular farming is the use of plants or plant cells to produce high-value products from proteins and metabolites, particularly for pharmaceutical and medical/diagnostic, agricultural and industrial uses. Molecular farming is the hi-tech end of the spectrum it uses molecular tools and engineered plants to produce low-volume, high-value, pharmaceutical-type products biotechnology covers everything from beer brewing to genome engineering. Plant molecular farming (pmf) is a new branch of plant biotechnology, where plants are engineered to produce recombinant pharmaceutical and industrial proteins in large quantities as an emerging subdivision. Plant molecular farming (pmf) is a new branch of plant biotechnology, where plants are engineered to produce recombinant pharmaceutical and industrial proteins in large quantities. Molecular farming (mf), in terms of production scale and economy, product safety, ease of storage, and distribution, is superior to any other current commercial alternative despite mf's promising benefits, the commercialization of mf-derived products is lagging behind due to uncertainty and.

This redirect is within the scope of wikiproject chemical and bio engineering, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of chemical and bio engineering articles on wikipedia. Molecular farming in plants is a relatively young subject of sciences as plants can offer an inexpensive and convenient platform for the large-scale production of recombinant proteins with various functions, the driven force from the giant market for recombinant protein pharmaceuticals and. Molecular farming under fire ottawa - the next wave of genetically altered plants are on the horizon, and activists are warning the hue and cry over plant molecular farming will dwarf any. As molecular farming has come of age, there have been technological developments on many levels, including transformation methods, control of gene expression, protein targeting and accumulation, the use of different crops as production platforms (twyman et al, 2003), and modifications to alter the.
