Enzyme-conjugated DNA nanoswitches for biosensing applications

Project description

Enzyme-based nano-biosensors for diagnostic purposes

The EU-funded ENZYME-SWITCHES project is an interdisciplinary proposal that aims to develop novel enzyme-based biosensors for diagnostic applications. Researchers will combine the high specificity and sensitivity of enzymes with the programmable flexibility and versatility of synthetic responsive DNA nanodevices to create DNA-conjugated enzymes as sensitive diagnostic markers. The project involves partners with expertise in molecular biology, enzymology, biosensor technology, bioengineering devices and biophysics as well as specialists in DNA nanotechnology, analytical chemistry and electrochemistry.
