In a recent research, scientists have designed a machine, which, when fully developed, will be able to perform the full functionality of that of a ribosome. This research was done by scientists from Manchester University. The aim is to produce different types of proteins which will help in the production of novel drugs for disease treatment and cure. This might also help in the production of a completely biodegradable plastic; the scope and opportunities are endless. The paper was published in the magazine Science.
