SARS-CoV-2 detection in 30 minutes using gene scissors

Researchers introduce biosensor for the nucleic acid amplification-free detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA


CRISPR-Cas is versatile: Besides the controversial genetically modified organisms (GMOs), created through gene editing, various new scientific studies use different orthologues of the effector protein ‘Cas’ to detect nucleic acids such as DNA or RNA. In its most recent study, the research group ...
