Expression of exogenous genes using synthetic modified mRNAs has a superior safety profile and higher efficiency than DNA-based techniques. However, mRNA stability and immunogenicity have been significant barriers for wide spread use. The modified mRNAs in this protocol address these shortcomings and can be used to direct cell fate specification or cellular reprogramming.
