A study being performed by Yang et al. involves genetically modified rice in which human serum albumin is being expressed within the rice seeds. In the article "Large-scale production of functional human serum albumin from transgenic rice seeds" they discuss how this could be a answer for the increasing world demand for human serum albumin to aid in sever burns and even liver cirrhosis.
