At the University of California Irvine, scientists have developed a means through which they can unboil egg whites by untangling their proteins, a development which NewsWeek reports has the potential to significantly reduce the cost of any biotechnology process which requires the folding of proteins.

Gregory Weiss, a biochemistry professor at UCI who is among the scientists behind the recent breakthrough in protein folding, confirmed in a press release published on the university’s website that the group of researchers had “invented a way to unboil a hen egg.”
