Biomarker Finder Adjusts on the Fly

(Rice University) A Rice University laboratory has developed a continuously tunable method to find and quantify DNA and RNA biomarkers.
Rice bioengineer David Zhang and his colleagues have developed a unique way to adjust their nucleic acid probe reagents on the fly and take a reliable count of target sequences…
The ability to identify DNA or RNA sequences, especially mutations, has become critically important for the detection of diseases and design of therapies to treat them. But finding a specific biomarker in a massive amount of genetic code is hard.
Zhang and his team at Rice's BioScience Research Collaborative have become specialists in finding such needles in haystacks.
