Description:

Vats used to grow bacteria. How was synthetic insulin first made? Although the idea was simple, in practice there were substantial problems. No one had the human DNA sequence for insulin, and there was a moratorium on the production of human recombinant DNA. Two different strategies were used to obtain the human insulin DNA sequence, and transfer it into bacteria. In the end, one strategy and one company won out.
