-xylosidase for semi-synthesis of Taxol
Total synthesis from crude-oil has been possible recently, but it is not a very green path in the production of Taxol.

Plant Cell Fermentation
Taxol was originally isolated from the pacific yew tree, but the extraction process is costly and environmentalists object to destroying the slow-growing trees to obtain the drug. Total synthesis is out of the question except as an academic exercise.
