Abstract:

Virtual EM, in collaboration with the Michigan Nanotechnology Institute for Medicine and Biological Sciences (MNIMBS) of the University of Michigan, proposes to develop the first stage in a BWA sensor, an electronic switch that indicates the presence of a biological warfare agent (BWA). This work will use previously designed aptamers that bind specifically to the BWA. The switch will activate in the presence of the BWA and remain open when there is no BWA present.
