In the second edition of the textbook "Biotechnology for Beginners" that will be published by Elsevier in February 2017 the authors Reinhard Renneberg, Viola Berkling and Vanya Loroch cover Ralf Reski's view as expert under the headline "Mosses Work Miracles". On these pages, Reski summarizes why plants are on the rise as alternative expression hosts for the production of recombinant biopharmaceuticals. The Chair of Plant Biotechnology from University of Freiburg also explains why he focusses on the moss Physcomitrella patens, which he has developed to be a flagship model for basic and applied research. He describes its advantages as well as its suitability for the production of several biopharmaceuticals.
