Researchers develop fast, efficient way to build amino acid chains

Researchers report that they have developed a faster, easier and cheaper method for making new amino acid chains — the polypeptide building blocks that are used in drug development and industry — than was previously available. The new approach purifies the amino acid precursors and builds the polypeptides at the same time, unlike previous methods in which the processes were separate, laborious and time-consuming.
