DNA Nanodevice For Pathogen Detection

Eric Henderson of Iowa State University in the U.S. will build an inexpensive and robust nanodevice that uses DNA as a scaffold to interact with proteins and nucleic acid markers of target pathogens. When this interaction occurs, the movement will be detected by a reader embedded in the device to create a visual readout of pathogen detection.
