As Jason said, the article that started this whole thread.
I'd quibble with him a bit: I'm not sure cultured meat is *harder* than
growing vaccines (in animal cells). It's about the same. But
commercial cultured meat has to happen on a scale many orders of
magnitude greater and *that's* the hard bit.
You need pharma-grade equipment because otherwise your meat incubator
gets invaded by bacteria and you have at best cultured rotten meat, if
not bacterial slurry. Viruses are likely a risk too.
