Climate Smart Milk Proteins

The project is mainly about developing an alternative method for producing milk proteins. The milk protein that we focus on is casein (milk also contains whey protein), which is the main ingredient in dairy products such as cheese and yogurt. Production will be effected by so-called recombinant protein-production, which is largely developed by adding a synthetic gene (part of a DNA molecule) into the DNA of a microorganism which in turn instructs the organism to produce the desired protein.
