  • Bacteria
  • In a paper online this week in Science Advances, Rice's research team used lab tests to verify that UMD could identify 11 known strains of bacteria using the same five random DNA probes. (phys.org)
  • The new study includes several computer simulations, including one that shows how a random selection of five probes can identify 40 different strains of bacteria, and another that demonstrates how the system can accurately differentiate between 24 different species of Staphylococcus. (phys.org)
  • I'm currently have some trouble screening a ZAP II library composed of genomic DNA of my bacteria of interest. (bio.net)
  • strand
  • Upon addition of unlocking oligonucleotides that drive toehold-mediated strand displacement, the probes reset to the real-time state, thereby erasing stored mechanical information. (pnas.org)
  • scientists
  • Rice University scientists have invented a technology that could potentially identify hundreds of bacterial pathogens simply, quickly and at low cost using a single set of random DNA probes. (phys.org)
  • different
  • My probe is a 350 bp PCR product from an insert that I identified using a different vector system. (bio.net)
  • technology
  • A three-year combined project at Moredun Research Institute and Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh will look into DNA technology to develop more effective vaccines. (fwi.co.uk)
  • Moreduns deputy director Willy Donachie says using DNA technology will result in cheaper and safer vaccines. (fwi.co.uk)
  • Change
  • With universal microbial diagnostic, we won't need new probes or to change any other parts of the sensing hardware," he said. (phys.org)
  • Store
  • We solve this challenge by developing molecular probes that store mechanical information. (pnas.org)
  • Author
  • Probe A is only good for finding bacterium A, and probe B is only good for finding bacterium B," said study lead author Amirali Aghazadeh, a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering in Baraniuk's lab. (phys.org)
  • Available
  • Manufacturing such a probe for a new disease can take days to months and also requires expensive facilities that are only available in developed countries. (phys.org)
