Development of a Yeast Based Arsenic Biosensor for the Rapid and Reliable Testing of Groundwater

Project: Research project

Project Details


Many ground water contaminants and other environmental pollutants are hard to detect without expensive detection kits that contain harsh and toxic chemicals. The Fellow’s project involves synthetic biology approaches to engineer biosensing organisms to detect and report on toxic environmental contaminants. This research would allow for more sensitive and environmentally friendly pollutant testing based on synthetic cellular biosensors compared to the chemical based kits.
