Students coax yeast cells to add vitamins to bread

He and some of the other team members are also looking for outside funding to continue pushing the VitaYeast project forward. Yet before VitaYeast bread can make its way to malnourished people, it must overcome many hurdles, including animal testing and rigorous regulatory reviews.

Still, faculty adviser Boeke is not betting against his student scientists. "Could this notion of releasing a genetically modified organism in a Third World country ever happen?" he asked. "Personally, I think the answer is yes." Some of the iGEM students, Boeke said, "were ready to rush off and do it right away, and we had to restrain their enthusiasm." Another faculty member, who is a bioethicist, was called in to urge the students to be more patient in pressing toward their goal. "She's helped the students understand what the steps are needed to get to that point," Boeke said. "That will certainly be a multiyear process, at best. But I think it could happen."
