Russian TV comes to Roslin
Today we were delighted to host a TV crew from Russia’s NTV channel who came to Roslin Technologies to find out firsthand about our innovative pipeline of research and technology projects.
Among those interviewed were Dr Lissa Herron, Avian Biopharming Business Unit Head, and Pritika Singh of the Frozen Aviary business unit.Lissa is working on our Eggcellent Proteins unit www.eggcellentproteins.com, which has commercialised Roslin Institute technology to modify genes in chickens so that they express high levels of target proteins in their egg whites, which can then be used in the production of tools for research and, potentially, animal and human medicines.
Pioneering research at Roslin Institute has enabled biobanking of complete germlines for chickens through isolation and cryopreservation of primordial germ cells. Roslin Technologies has bio-banked thousands of cell lines for clients for future use.
