forgive this outsider's intrusion into a very specific group
( bionet.molbio.methds-reagnts ), but it is the closest thing I can find
to the appropriate place to post this question:
Is there any current research and/or biotech development which would
make it possible to produce large quantities of cultured muscle-fibers ?
The point of the question is whether now or in the near future
biotech will make it possible to 'grow chicken breasts' (so to speak)
so that some form of meat-like products can be marketed which are
NOT derived from the abuse and/or killing of animals?
If this is technically possible, and industrially feasible,
it would seem that it could have major implications.
