Animal agriculture accounts for many environmental, ethical, and economic concerns. Current practices in this industry are not sustainable due to limited resources and the rapidly increasing population. Alternative solutions need to be considered in order to sustain the growing demand for meat production. One solution is cellular agriculture, which is the process of culturing bovine muscle tissue in the lab. However, this process remains expensive, time consuming, and not scalable. The goal of this project is to create a bioreactor for large-scale bovine muscle tissue production utilizing decellularized plants as scaffolds.
