Submission Scientists Derive Gelatin from Human Tissue->

An anonymous reader writes: Conventional gelatin is made from collagen inside animals’ skin and bones, however a group of researchers has managed to replace that animal base with a human one. The process involves taking human gelatin genes and inserting them into a strain of yeast, which can be cultivated to grow gelatin with controllable features. Jinchun Chen, the leader of the study, and his colleagues believe they can scale this process up to produce large amounts of human-based gelatin for medical uses. The research appears in the American Chemical Society’s Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
