Biofabrication, Stem Cells, Leather, Collagen


A field of biotechnology called "biofabrication" focuses on the study and development of biologically engineered processes for the creation of functional products. Scientists from a variety of backgrounds are entering the subject of biofabrication as it develops and grows. One of the most widely used fabrics in the world, leather, is currently created using this technology. Leather is a strong, flexible, and long-lasting material, obtained from the tanning, or chemical treatment of animal skins and hides. Clothing, shoes, handbags, furniture, tools, and sporting goods can all be made from leather, and it is durable for many years. The main protein of leather, collagen can be grown artificially by using the process of biofabrication, which involves DNA modification. Additionally, it makes precise use of 3D printing technology to combine materials and cells to cultivate tissues. After introducing Lab-grown burgers, it is nowadays no surprise to bio-fabricate leather which is an environmentally friendly, efficient, and novel way of production. With the help of this technique, the leather may be produced with arranged elasticity, flexibility, and thickness. This study presents information about the biofabrication of lab-grown animal products.
