Programmable nucleic acid toolkits for cell-free diagnostics and genetically encoded biosensing

Project description

Nucleic acid nanotechnology for the creation of cell-free point-of-care diagnostics

The biological complexity of tumours and the diversity of diagnostic biomarkers require the development of innovative analytical tools for the detection of multiple targets in a sensitive, specific and low-cost way to allow real-time monitoring of disease progression and therapeutic effects. The goal of the EU-funded PRO-TOOLKITS project is to introduce innovative cell-free point-of-care diagnostic kits and genetically manipulated biosensing tools. The researchers will develop rationally designed programmable nucleic acid modules that respond to a wide range of molecular markers and environmental stimuli. The project's work will lead to significant breakthroughs in the fields of in vitro diagnostics, biosensing and synthetic biology.
