GreenLight Biosciences is mentioned in Nature Biotechnology for its work on vaccines for variants and shortages in the global South. An extract is below:

Even before the pandemic arrived, Tübingen, Germany-based CureVac and CEPI were co-developing portable mRNA printing technology, which could rapidly produce hundreds of thousands of vaccine doses in localized settings. “We have a ‘wave 2’ portfolio that we put in place last year,” says Jackson. This remains at the prototype stage, Jackson says.

“It really is the ticket for mRNA having a global impact in the future.” CEPI is also “in active discussions” with GreenLight Biosciences, which has developed a low-cost cell-free mRNA production method that relies on harvesting nucleotides from yeast biomass.
