    Milk-free cheese made using human DNA strands

    San Francisco-based iGem group said it found a way to make cheese proteins using genetic sequences found in mammals.
    The DNA blueprints are inserted into the yeast, which creates cheese that is vegan-compatible because of the lack of animal products.
    Some of the DNA strands are from humans, because the developers hope milk proteins made from our own species will mean less chance of allergic reactions.

    Unique milk protein based nanotubes

    (Nanowerk News) Researchers in the Netherlands investigated novel α-lactalbumin nanotubes with potentially interesting applications in the food and pharma industries.
    Under certain conditions, partial hydrolysis of the milk protein α-lactalbumin by a protease from Bacillus licheniformis (a large, aerobic bacillus that produces endospores) leads to self-assembly of nanotubes several micrometers in length. One potential application of these long, stiff nanotubes is as controlled-release drug delivery agents.
    Because α-lactalbumin is a milk protein, it will be fairly easy to apply the nanotubes in food applications as a novel ingredient with specific functionality. Furthermore, α-lactalbumin has significant nutritional properties and is associated with some positive health effects upon consumption.
