Silks exhibit strength and elasticity and are biocompatible and biodegradable protein–based materials. Recent advances in genetic engineering make it possible to produce recombinant silks in heterologous hosts, opening up opportunities for large scale production of recombinant silks for various biomedical and materials science applications. This topic is reviewed in the present paper.
