Engineering better medicines: Advances in genetically modifying yeast could help create new drugs

Plants have helped cure disease and relieve pain since ancient times, and new research at Clemson University could help tap even more of their potential. Many plants hold promising pharmaceutical compounds but in quantities far too small to develop into marketable drugs. In some cases, the entire area of the United States could be farmed with a single crop and it would be enough to treat just a few patients.
