Biography

Tsafrir Mor is a molecular biologist and biochemist whose research focuses on using plants to produce useful and therapeutic polypeptides, proteins and enzymes.

In the advent of the "genomic revolution,” biology is transforming from a discipline limited by information, to one hindered only by our ability to process and use the overwhelming amount of data gathered. A major challenge is to use this information to support innovations in agriculture, medicine, and engineering, that benefit humans and the environment.

In this context, plants hold a special place since they are the basis of our food supply and source for medicinal compounds and raw materials. Mor’s team focuses its research on Pharming — a biotechnology frontier that links plant biology and medicine. Mor is a member of the Center of Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology at ASU’s Biodesign Institute.
