CRISPR-based Technology Enables High-Resolution Zika Detection On Low-Cost Paper Discs

Building off their earlier innovative development in “programmable diagnostics”, researchers on an international, multi-institutional team recently joined efforts to quickly prototype their low-cost rapid test with the goal that it could soon be used to screen samples (blood, urine, or saliva) for Zika virus and strain identification.

Programming Language Simplifies Design of Biological Circuits

Bioengineers have created a programming language that allows to rapidly design complex DNA-encoded circuits that provide new functions to living cells. In a first application, genetic circuits generated on plasmids expressed in Escherichia coli bacteria successfully regulated cellular functions in response to multiple environmental signals.  More...
