Advances in molecular biology and genetics have created the possibility of using plants as vehicles for producing therapeutics, vaccines, food additives or other valuable products. There are several perceived advantages of using plants as sources of health molecules, including potentially lower production costs, as plants are relatively easy and cheap to grow, and offers the feasibility of large-scale protein production without the immense capital investment required for setting up conventional systems.
