Scientists are looking for biologic drugs which are cheaper than the existing drugs. The biologic drugs manufactured in mammalian cell culture or by bacteria or yeasts for treating diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis and cancer cost too much. The alternate is green algae, which is abundant, resilient, cheap to grow, and efficient at folding complex proteins.
