Select a Plant Delivery System
Begin developing the edible hepatitis B vaccine by selecting a plant delivery system. Many plants have been successfully genetically modified, but, for this project, we need to consider how the plant containing the vaccine protein will be cultivated and how the vaccine will be administered.
Using the criteria listed below, choose between four candidate plants: tomato, banana, potato, or alfalfa.
Read the considerations for choosing a plant to produce an edible vaccine and background information about each plant below. Then select a plant for delivering the hepatitis B edible vaccine by clicking on it.
