RNA Restriction Enzymes to Detect Viral/Bacterial Infections

Jennifer Doudna of the University of California, Berkeley in the U.S. test the ability of newly discovered RNA restriction enzymes to bind to specific RNA sequences inherent in a wide range of pathogens. If successful, this test could potentially be embedded on wickable paper to test human urine samples and produce a colormetric readout diagnostic like a pregnancy test.
