Genetically engineered algae kills 90% of cancer cells without harming healthy ones

[Australia] Algae has been genetically engineered to kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells. The algae nanoparticles, created by scientists in Australia, Continue reading Genetically engineered algae kills 90% of cancer cells without harming healthy ones

Intricate algae produce low-cost biosensors

(Phys.org) —Oregon State University researchers are combining diatoms, a type of single-celled photosynthetic algae, with nanoparticles to create a sensor capable of detecting miniscule amounts of protein or other biomarkers.

This is a new and innovative approach to optical biosensors, which are important in health care for such applications as… Continue reading Intricate algae produce low-cost biosensors
