Molecular pharming, also known as plant molecular farming, is a biotechnological method leveraging genetically modified plants or organisms to produce valuable proteins, pharmaceuticals, and other high-value products. This approach involves the introduction of recombinant DNA into plants or animal cells to enable the expression of specific proteins or compounds. Molecular pharming finds extensive applications across pharmaceuticals, industrial manufacturing, and agriculture. It enables the economical production of therapeutic proteins, enzymes, monoclonal antibodies, and innovative products like edible vaccines and plantibodies (plant-derived antibodies). Moreover, it supports the synthesis of industrial enzymes and chemicals, alongside advancements in crop nutrition and protection.


Molecular pharming offers diverse applications in pharmaceuticals by facilitating cost-effective production of vital medicines and antibodies, meeting global healthcare demands. In industrial settings, it contributes to the efficient synthesis of enzymes and chemicals crucial for various manufacturing processes. Agricultural applications of molecular pharming are pivotal in enhancing crop resilience, nutrition, and sustainability, aligning with increasing environmental concerns and the shift towards sustainable farming practices. The market for molecular pharming is poised for significant growth driven by these broad applications and the continuous demand for innovative biotechnological solutions.
