Explained: How do scientists make mRNA in vitro?

In vitro transcription lays the foundation for recent advances in mRNA vaccines and therapeutics. 

The technology behind mRNA vaccines and therapeutics relies on one of the most fundamental processes in cell biology — transcription. Today researchers have devised a way to replicate transcription outside the confines of a cell in a process known as in vitro transcription (IVT).
