Hello New Harvest,

Here’s part four of our seven-part series sharing all 45 of the peer-reviewed publications supported by New Harvest.

Part IV is about the cells of cellular agriculture. These are the building blocks of the field!

Friendly reminder, a star (*) beside the link indicates that the paper is not open access, but most will be open access so that anyone - inside or outside of academia - can read it.

Not a scientist? We tried our absolute best to at least give you a vibe of what the papers are about in case something catches your eye.

PART IV: CELLS (in chronological order)

  1. Did you know that insect cells are nutritious and easy to grow? They could be critical to advancing the science of cellular agriculture.
  2. In fact, insect cells could be the key to scale!
  3. It turns out that fish cells are a neglected but very high potential area for cellular agriculture. Fish cells have a unique set of properties that make them well-suited for cellular agriculture.
  4. Imagine if you could eat meat and vegetables at the same time! This paper looks at how to make meat more nutritious.
  5. Back to insects, here’s a thorough review of possible cell lines for insect cell culture.
  6. The number of times a cell doubles is an important factor to understanding scale. This paper looks at how we increase the longevity of cells in culture.
  7. This paper brings together a dream team of New Harvest fellows to review the future of cultured fat!
  8. Insects have fat too, and it may be healthier than the fat in conventional meat*.

With all this emerging work on the cells of cellular agriculture, it is interesting to note that the field doesn't have a go-to "workhorse" cell for cultured meat research.

Definitely tons of room to grow in this space.

Catch me next week with part five on media (as in, food for cells).

Until next time,
